Cornus – Arctic Fire®
Native to North America
The best red 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.
Great for landscapes, use in perennial or shrub borders, masses and groupings, container gardens and winter gardens.
PLEASE NOTE: Arctic Fire® Red-Osier Dogwood Cornus is restricted and cannot be shipped to the state(s) of FL.
