Out of stock
Dogwood - Golden Prairie Fire, Cornus alba 'Aurea', is a well known, indispensable shrub with colorful bark that provides winter interest. It is not particular about soil type and will grow in sun or semi-shade. Unpruned it will grow to 7 feet tall, but annual pruning will keep it at 5 feet. Golden Prairie Fire is a workhorse shrub with large bright yellow leaves in spring and bright orange-red stems all through late fall and winter. Its solid gold foliage turns fiery red in the fall. If planted in shade, its foliage will be light green to yellow. Golden Prairie Fire makes an excellent plant for borders or foundations because of its color contrast.
