Arctic Sun Dogwoods For Sale Online
Arctic Sun Dogwoods (Cornus sanguinea 'Arctic Sun') is grown for the brilliant and unique array of colors their stems bring to your garden. This deciduous shrub features bright yellow stems that fade to orange and end with a bright crimson at the new tips, creating a dynamic splash of color in winter landscapes all season long. You can even use the stems as a strong accent in holiday floral arrangements.
In the spring the leaves are a lovely light green and the flowers are classic white blossoms. After blooming, your shrubs will produce deep purple berries before the fall season. The show really starts in the fall with their foliage displaying bright sunshine yellows and sunset reds.
Arctic Sun Dogwood Shrubs stay low, growing approximately 3 to 4 feet wide by 3 to 4 feet high at maturity. No maintenance is required on these dwarf shrubs, but pruning the older stems in the spring can help encourage a brighter display of colors in the winter.
It is not only the stem colors that transition over the course of the year. The green leaves in spring will change to bright lime green and yellow, then they change again in the fall to rich yellows, oranges, corals, and reds. The shrubs are popular for landscaping since they are considered deer resistant and are a great choice for a shrub border.
