A ray of winter sunshine for your landscape! Arctic Fire Yellow dogwood offers the same legendary durability as red-twig dogwood but brings a cheerful yellow option. Stunning on its own, or planted with Arctic Fire Red dogwood, it also brings a nice option for cutting for winter and holiday arrangements. Native to North America.
The best yellow color appears on one and two-year-old stems; older stems will turn corky and brown. To maintain a colorful display, you can do one of two things: one, cut the whole plant back to short stubs every other year. Two, cut out one-third of the oldest stems every year. This option is recommended if you planted your Arctic Fire® dogwood to provide coverage. Early spring is the best time to prune.
