Why plant Arctic Fire® Red Twig Dogwood?
An innovation in red twig dogwoods, Artic Fire is bringing the best of the red twigs into a smaller, compact shrub form perfect for the smaller gardens that cannot handle the standard size dogwoods. Most well-known for the bright red stems that add colorful appeal to the landscape, this shrub has other characteristics that make it desirable in the landscape. With small landscapes, there is not always a sunny spot to plant new shrubs and Artic Fire is one of the most shade-tolerant shrubs available today. Artic Fire, as versatile as it is, also does not have a strict soil requirement making this an easy plant to please. Plant Artic Fire en masse to add winter interest to the landscape and add to your holiday decorations this winter.
Arctic Fire is a native dwarf cultivar version of redtwig dogwoods. This variety does not spread like other redtwig varieties, instead Arctic Fire stays compact and does not grow larger than 4 ft tall and wide.
How to use Arctic Fire® Red Twig Dogwood in the landscape?
Feed the songbirds! Arctic Fire propagates attractive, dainty white blooms that transform into white berries songbirds love to eat!

How To Plant Arctic Fire® Red Twig Dogwood
Being a native shrub, Arctic Fire can be grown just about anywhere due to it's adaptive qualities. Ideally, Arctic Fire should be planted in an area exposed to full sun or partial shade and almost any soil is fair game. Locate Arctic Fire in a wet area and watch as the landscape comes alive in a once desolate area. Try not to allow Arctic Fire to dry out and provide additional waterings during dry spells. Any pruning should be conducted in the fall after the leaves have fallen, and the cut branches can be used in the home as a decorative addition to a homemade bouquet.
How To Fertilize
Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.
