PLEASE NOTE: Arctic Fire® Yellow dogwood is restricted and cannot be shipped to the state(s) of FL.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.Arctic Fire® Yellow Cornus stolonifera 'SMNCSBD' USPP 32,351, Can PBRAF
