Dogwood - Isanti
Fast-Growing Shrub with Year-Round Appeal
Isanti Dogwood is a deciduous shrub with year-round appeal and particular winter color. Isanti would make a lively planting for your property boarder or plant just one near a window for some winter interest.
Your Isanti Dogwood has several admirable features, but when it really shines is during the winter months. In winter, the red stems of your Isanti Dogwood will astound you with their vibrant color, especially against the crisp, white snow. One Isanti Dogwood is head-turner, but several, in a hedge or naturalized area, become a show-stopper!
Even when not showing off its winter brilliance, your Isanti Dogwood knows how to shine. Petite, white flowers form in clusters on your Isanti in spring, and 4-inch, lancelet leaves form as well, bringing your Dogwood an attractive summer appearance.
The leaves turn a deep red for fall, and the flowers become blue-tinted, white drupes--to the delight of your yard’s feathered friends!
Isanti Dogwood is a fast-growing, multi-stemmed shrub. It will grow to about five feet in height with a seven foot spread, and is more compact than other varieties. It’s tolerant of a variety of soils, and doesn’t mind even boggy conditions. Isanti Dogwood grows naturally beautiful, but is acceptable of pruning if you so desire.
It will grow in both sun and shade, and is generally a hardy little shrub requiring little or no care from you. It can be expected to live up to 20 years in optimal conditions.
The Isanti Dogwood is certainly a tuff little shrub that seems to have it all. Flower and fruit, vibrant green summer foliage and bright fall color, as well as breathtaking winter brilliance…Isanti Dogwood demands attention year-round.
