Maintenance Notes

The best yellow color appears on one and two year old stems; older stems will turn corky and brown. To maintain a colorful display, you can do one of two things: one, cut the whole plant back to short stubs every other year. Two, cut out one-third of the oldest stems every year. This option is recommended if you planted your Arctic Fire® dogwood to provide coverage. Early spring is the best time to prune.

If desired, apply a granular fertilizer formulated for trees and shrubs at pruning time.

Uses Notes

Ideal for landscapes, use in perennial or shrub borders, masses and groupings, container gardens and winter gardens.

PLEASE NOTEArctic Fire® Yellow dogwood is restricted and cannot be shipped to the state(s) of FL.
