Mike Farrow brings us another special Cornus with beautiful red stems. It's a spectacular show in the winter sunlight. This variety is dwarf in form, reaching a height of 3 to 5 feet. Cornus usually reach a height of 8 to 10 feet, making Arctic Fire a great breakthrough for smaller gardens or residential landscapes.

This wonderful shrub will add sensational color in the winter with its intense red stems. Bring the outdoors in and use Arctic Fire as a cut stem for holiday arrangements or for season long color indoors.
