How To Care

 The Red Twig Dogwood grows in full sun to part shade. It is adaptable to a variety of soil including clay and even wet soil. However, a well-draining soil is ideal. For the first few weeks water deeply about 3 times per week to help the roots grow properly. Reduce to about 2 times per week for the next couple months while your dogwood is establishing. After this establishment period, you can cut back once again, but be sure to avoid allowing the soil to dry completely. This shrub likes does not like to be dry. Fertilize with a balanced, slow release fertilizer once a year in spring for best results. Mulching is great option to keep the soil moist. Add 2-3 inches of mulch around this shrub, taking care to cover the entire root zone area. There is no need to prune this shrub, but if you do, prune in early spring. Pruning older wood every few years will encourage a brighter red bark. Pruning back to 6-8 inches yearly will keep your dogwood vibrant and compact. Red Twig Dogwoods are deer tolerant.


Provide optimal conditions to keep your Arctic Fire Red Twig Dogwood healthy. A healthy plant will have significantly less risk of disease and pest. Scale, and Bagworms can cause problems for these shrubs on occasion. Scale can be treated with horticultural oil, optimally applied in the dormant season. Bagworms are generally treated, by cutting off the affected portion of the branch or applying carbaryl or Bacillus thuringiensis. Avoid fungal issues by watering at the base of your plant especially in warm and humid climates. Allowing proper air flow will reduce and even eliminate this issue as well.

Special: For the most vivid red color prune your Arctic Fire Red Twig Dogwood to just a couple inches  every other year.  The brightest red is on younger stems.  If you want to keep more height enjoy the fiery transition from the older to newer portion of the stems of simply prune back the oldest stems when they aren't offering as much color as you would like.  Keep your pruned stems for a lovely holiday arrangement!
