PLEASE NOTE: Arctic Fire® Red-Osier Dogwood Cornus is restricted and cannot be shipped to the state(s) of FL.Maintenance Notes:
The best red 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.
If desired, apply a granular fertilizer formulated for trees and shrubs at pruning time.Arctic Fire® Red Cornus stolonifera 'Farrow' USPP 18,523

Plant was blooming when I bought it the summer before last. Last summer, it did not bloom, but grew large. Now, it is June 14, 2010, & there still are no signs of flowering this year, either? Arctic Sun, which is next to it, is lovely and blooming.Marion Martin, Illinois, United States, 8 years ago
