Red twigs a gem in the garden!
Red Twig Dogwood is a common shrub that is found in natural areas and roadside ditches, being native, tough and resilient to pests and diseases. Arctic Fire is a lovely compact form of the regular Red Twig Dogwood but with all the same great qualities as the larger variety. It is a wonderful addition to any garden. Bushes grow only 3-4 feet tall and wide, suiting most gardens better than the taller variety. They flower briefly in the spring, and grow a thick bush full of greenery in the summer and fall.
Bright winter interest
The real beauty of Arctic Fire though is the red stems which provide bright winter interest against the snow in the winter and early spring. Arctic Fire Dogwood will grow in full sun or partial shade, making it quite versatile. When creating a new garden, I like to make a loose framework of shrubs, in front of which and around, I plant perennials in groups. Try planting Arctic Fire either singly or in groups of three, in gardens or in a naturalized area. They are easy, no fuss shrubs!
