The Prairie Fire Dogwood is a wonderful shrub for any garden. It has beautiful golden yellow leaves all spring and summer, and in winter it has the brightest red twigs of any dogwood available. It also has unique porcelain-blue berries in mid-summer, and to top it off, it is hardy to zone 3 – minus 40 degrees. Plant it as a striking specimen anywhere in your garden. It looks especially effective near water, and it is a great choice for wetter parts of the garden. It grows between 5 and 8 feet tall, depending on pruning, and it is about 5 feet across. Plant it alone, or in groups for a beautiful effect.

  • Beautiful golden yellow leaves all spring and summer
  • Bright orange-red winter twigs
  • Hardy to zone 3
  • Perfect choice for damp areas, around water and natural settings
  • Unique porcelain-blue berries in summer

The Prairie Fire Dogwood will have the best foliage and twig color if grown in a sunny place, but it will tolerate some shade too. It grows well in ordinary garden soil, with some drought resistance once established, but it thrives in damper places, unlike most other shrubs. It has few pest or disease problems, and deer usually do little or no damage. Prune every few years, or annually, by removing older wood to encourage bright new shoots. Overgrown plants can be cut to the ground, and they will re-grow quickly.
