Cornus Arctic Fire® Dogwood

Select Item


Colorful, Container-Sized Dogwood

Its tidy habit requires no pruning to keep its handsome shape

Finally, a red-twig dogwood that's made for today's smaller gardens and patio containers, with more color impact than ever before. Cornus Arctic Fire® Dogwood is a remarkable new cultivar bred by renowned plantsman Michael Farrow of Holly Hill Nursery. Selected for its neat, compact habit and improved branching, it gives you even more fire-red stems for bright winter interest in borders or containers. And because of its compact habit, it needs far less pruning to maintain a beautiful shape.

Happy in sun or part shade, this delightful shrub reaches just 3 to 5 feet tall and wide, with intense red stems that glow in the winter garden and make a unique addition to holiday floral arrangements. In late spring, Cornus Arctic Fire Dogwood adds another dimension of beauty with a profusion of small flat-topped white bloom clusters followed in late summer by white berries that bring songbirds to the garden. Arctic Fire is even attractive in autumn when it sports reddish purple foliage color, proving itself a true four-season beauty. It's very low-maintenance and requires no pruning, but if you'd like to shape it or promote new stems for the best winter color, make sure you prune it right after it flowers to allow buds to set for the next year.
