More Information

Description Don't dread winter - celebrate it, with the bold and cheerful red stems of Arctic Fire® Red red-twig dogwood (Cornus sericea)! This super durable native shrub looks rugged and handsome in the landscape all season, but come autumn, the leaves drop to reveal bright red stems that persist in the landscape all winter. It truly shines when surrounded by a blanket of fresh snow. Perfect for just about any landscape, this dogwood grows to half the height of most varieties, making it easy to fit just about anywhere! We absolutely love this and Arctic Fire Yellow dogwood planted in front of evergreens, the wall of your home, or anywhere they can be appreciated against a backdrop to really make their color pop. Details Botanical name: Cornus sericea 'Farrow'
Patent #: USPP 18,523
Common name: Red twig dogwood
Zone: 2 - 7
Sun exposure: Sun (6+ hours sun) to part-sun (4-6 hours sun)
Height x width: 3-5' tall x 3-5' wide
Flower color: White
Foliage color: Green
Season of Interest: Winter
Uses: Accent, background, border, erosion control or embankment, foundation, hedge, massing, naturalizing, rain garden, slopes, specimen, waterside, woodland.
How To Grow Soil: Adaptable to most any level of soil moisture and pH. Can become stressed in extremely dry conditions, however.
Light: Full sun to part sun.  Will grow and survive in deep shade, but will not flower strongly, nor will its winter color be quite as vivid as if it gets some sun.
Water: Readily tolerates wet conditions and is often found growing on river banks and lakeshores in the wild. Established plants can tolerate some drought, but extreme drought may compromise aesthetics.
Spacing: 5-6' apart
Fertilizing: Supplemental fertilizer is not required. However, if you want faster growth, apply a granular rose or garden fertilizer in early spring, then again in early summer if desired.
Winterizing: No special care needed. A 2-3" layer of shredded bark mulch is beneficial. Stems can be cut for decorations and arrangements if desired.
Maintenance & Pruning: The best stem color on red-twig dogwoods appears on stems that are one or two years old. As stems mature, they develop corky, bark-like growth that obscures the color. As such, plants should be pruned yearly or every other year once they're established (3-4 years after planting).
You can do this in one of two ways: one, by cutting the entire plant back to small stumps in early spring (note that this method removes flower buds; it also will leave you with no coverage for several weeks as the plant recovers. The second method involves removing one-third of the oldest growth each spring by nipping it out at the base.

Unfortunately, a bit temperamental

I ordered about 15 of these plants. All were planted in a row in the same conditions. 12 of them took root and 3 have died (1 died early enough that I obtained a free replacement). I’m a bit disappointed in the failure rate.

Some made it/some did not

The quality of the plants were good overall. Two out of the six plants arrived looking very dry and not fresh. Although those two plants died, the other four continue to do well.

Plants doing great!

These plants are doing well, and have grown several inches in the last few weeks. We look forward to seeing how far they come by the fall, and if the stems turn red as they should. Very speedy service from this company! :-)
