Arctic Fire™ Red-Osier Dogwood Cornus stolonifera
- Hardy Zones
- 2 - 7
- Part Sun to Sun
- Mature Size
- 36 - 60 Inches
Beautiful red stems and compact, non-suckering habit. Deer resistant. Excellent for cutting. Native.
Great for landscapes, use in perennial or shrub borders, masses and groupings, container gardens and winter gardens.
Best stem color appears on new growth, so prune hard each spring to ensure a good display the following winter. Prune immediately after flowering. Branches may also be cut in winter for flower arrangements. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for recommended rate of application.
This special dogwood has beautiful red stems and a compact habit.
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.

Plant was blooming when I bought it the summer before last. Last summer, it did not bloom, but grew large. Now, it is June 14, 2010, & there still are no signs of flowering this year, either? Arctic Sun, which is next to it, is lovely and blooming.Marion MartinIllinoisUnited States5 years ago

I love this plant, it is beautiful year around. Bushes out in early spring then it blooms little white blooms in late summer then in late fall it drops it leaves and the branches turn bright red for a beautiful winter color in the cold months.TammyAlabamaUnited States5 years ago
