Product Information

'Midwinter Fire', is stunning with its vibrant flame-coloured stems. It's great for bees and butterflies too, which are attracted to the dainty white flowers.

Widely grown as ornamental plants, dogwoods are a subtle, underestimated garden staple which come into their own when their leaves change colour in a glorious display in autumn, falling to reveal the glowing branches so prized by gardeners.

Fully winter hardy, dogwoods are a popular shrub for any garden or even a large container as they are fairly unfussy and are both easy to grow and low maintenance, with a long season of interest  all year round!

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot

Growing to a height and spread of 2m (6ft), flowering white May - June

Care Information

Planting Advice for Cornus sanguinea 'Midwinter Fire'

  • Grow in full sun to partial shade.
  • Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you are planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to refill once the shrub is in place.
  • We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges, tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting, soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot, tease out a few of the roots and add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish more quickly.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level as the pot, then refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the rootball, and water well.

Aftercare advice for Cornus sanguinea 'Midwinter Fire'

  • Keep plants well-watered until established.

 Pruning Advice for Cornus sanguinea 'Midwinter Fire'

  • Remove a third of the stems back to ground level in March, when the new buds start to swell to promote new growth, which has the best colour.
