Redtwig Dogwood 'Farrow' ARCTIC FIRE Characteristics
'Farrow' are dwarf Redtwig Dogwood shrubs that produce multiseason interest. The green leaves and white flowers of the spring and summer make way for bright colored fall foliage and fruits. In winter, the shrub remains attractive as foliage drops and the bright red branches emerge.
These shrubs can be vulnerable to some leaf and twig blights. Occasionally insect pests can make their homes here, such as lead miners, bagworms, and scale.
These low maintenance shrubs can be used for a variety of applications. They can be left to naturalize, displayed as ornamental pieces, or used as a hedge to divide yards. The bright red color brings most interest in the winter months, particularly in snow or when planted with evergreens. Pruning is not required but may be desired to stop spreading or to encourage showier colors.
