Arctic Fire™ Red Twig Dogwood
Cornus stolonifera 'Farrow' P.P. #18,523
This compact selection of Red Twig Dogwood has dark red stems that provide a spectacular show in the winter sunlight. Unlike most Cornus that reach 8 to 10 feet tall, Arctic Fire grows to only half the height. Great in perennial or shrub borders, or used in flower arrangements. Cut vibrant stems for a dynamic addition to holiday arrangements. Tiny, fragrant, white flowers appear in flat-topped clusters in late spring, with sparse, intermittent, additional flowering sometimes continuing into summer. Flowers give way to clusters of whitish (sometimes with a bluish tinge) drupes in summer. Fruit is quite attractive to birds and is generally considered to have as much if not more ornamental interest than the flowers.
