General description of Cornus sanguinea Midwinter Fire plants:
Midwinter Fire Dogwood is a medium sized, deciduous shrub with dense, upright growth and amazing red, yellow and orange winter bark.
The summer leaves are green, turning an excellent orange-yellow in the autumn, making this a very attractive plant.
It can be used in informal hedges, but we think Cornus sanguinea Midwinter Fire dogwood is at its best in a massed planting, with or without other dogwoods to set it off. Midwinter Fire is not as vigorous as the other dogwoods, so plant it at the front if you are using it in a mixed patch.
Like all dogwoods, Cornus Midwinter Fire loves damp ground, but once it is established it will grow happily on a dry bank.
History & uses of Midwinter Fire Dogwood:
This variety was discovered by chance in a German garden by H. Venhorst in the early 1980's and it was released for sale in 1990.
