Cornus a. 'Prairiefire' #3


'Prairiefire' dogwood is the very definition of a four season interest plant. The reason most people are going to put this one in their garden is the bright red or orange stems.  Those stems form an incredible contrast to the chartreuse leaves that cover this plant in the spring and summer. Then the autumn leaves turn orange to red. We like to to give these guys a little protection from the mid-day sun, especially if their not getting regular water. That said, this plant is always surprising us with its resiliency. Tip: plant in a series of three in a part-sun corner. 

  • Bloom: May
  • Light: sun to part-shade
  • Water: ample water the first few season. Then you can cut back if desired. 
  • Size: 5' - 7' high and wide
  • Pruning: cut old stems all the way back in the late fall or winter when dormant
  • Growth rate: 25" or more per year
  • Zone: 2 - 7

Images are for general reference only. The size, shape, leaf color and bloom state will vary.
