Description

'Arctic Fire' is a cultivar of the red-twig dogwood (Cornus sericea), which is a deciduous shrub known for its vibrant red stems. Here are some key features and information about the 'Arctic Fire' dogwood:

  1. Stems: One of the primary attractions of 'Arctic Fire' is its bright red stems. The color intensifies during the winter months, providing a striking contrast against snow or dormant landscapes.

  2. Foliage: The foliage of 'Arctic Fire' is typically green during the growing season. In the fall, it may display shades of red or purple, adding additional seasonal interest.

  3. Size: This cultivar is often compact, making it suitable for smaller gardens or landscape areas. It generally reaches a height and spread of 3-5 feet.

  4. Flowers: In late spring to early summer, 'Arctic Fire' may produce small clusters of white flowers. While the flowers are not as showy as the stems, they contribute to the overall appeal of the plant.

  5. Fruit: After flowering, 'Arctic Fire' may develop small white berries. These berries are attractive to birds and can provide additional ornamental interest.

  6. Sunlight Requirements: Red-twig dogwoods, including 'Arctic Fire,' typically prefer full to partial sun. Adequate sunlight helps promote the vibrant coloration of the stems.

  7. Soil Conditions: Well-draining soil is preferable. Red-twig dogwoods can tolerate a range of soil types, including moist or even slightly wet conditions.

  8. Hardiness: 'Arctic Fire' is known for its hardiness and is suitable for USDA Hardiness Zones 3 to 7.

  9. Pruning: To encourage the best stem color, consider periodic pruning. Prune red-twig dogwoods in late winter or early spring, removing older stems to stimulate new growth.

  10. Landscaping Uses: 'Arctic Fire' is commonly used in landscaping for winter interest. It works well in mass plantings, as a border or hedge, or as a specimen plant.

When planting 'Arctic Fire' or any other red-twig dogwood, consider its specific growing requirements and how it fits into your overall landscape design. It is generally a low-maintenance shrub that adds beauty and interest, especially during the winter months.
