Dormancy Notice: This plant, like many others, enters dormancy or semi-dormancy in the late fall through early spring. *THIS PLANT IS NOT DEAD. It is completely healthy but upon receiving the plant, you may notice it exhibits fewer leaves, discoloration, or complete leaf drop. This is normal and essential to the plant's health. In fact, planting during dormancy promotes root growth, giving your plant a better start for spring, when new foliage will begin to grow.

Cornus Arctic Fire Red Twig Dogwood Shrubs Online

Arctic Fire Dogwood is a compact selection of Red Twig Dogwood that produces dark red stems that will provide a spectacular show in the winter. The vibrant stems can be cut in winter for a dynamic addition to holiday arrangements. Unlike most Red Twig Dogwoods that can reach up to 10 feet tall, the Arctic Fire dogwood grows to only half that height. This is a must for anyone looking for a plant to provide winter interest to the landscape.

When planting your newly purchased Arctic Fire Dogwood, we suggest you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil, you may need to add a locally-sourced compost or topsoil to the backfill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a backfill soil for Cornus Arctic Fire Shrubs because, more often than not, these products will retain too much moisture and cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of Arctic Fire Dogwood spread through the loose, nutrient-rich soil much easier than if you used solely the existing soil, which, more times than not, will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant too deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any more profound than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after backfilling the hole.
