How to Use Strawberry Daiquiri® Siberian Dogwood in the Landscape
This nicely branched, compact shrub is incredibly versatile. Use a single plant as a specimen outside your picture window, or in a lawn planting.
Pop several along the length of your mixed shrub borders. They’ll pair beautifully with evergreens, Yucca and Ornamental Grasses. Let them shine in your Winter Garden!
Plant them 3 feet apart on center to create a solid low screen along the length of your fence. Measure from the center of one to the center of the next.
Create a massed planting on a slope. Add other Red Twigged Dogwoods and Creme de Mint Siberian Dogwood to add additional color.
Add a row near your driveway, planted perpendicularly against the prevailing winds. You’ll trap snow and reduce your shoveling, while keeping your yard looking great!
Plant on the sunny side of existing windbreaks and shelterbelts for a huge boost of visual interest in winter, spring, summer and fall.
No matter where you use it, the dormant stems in the fall and winter are a delightfully bright, strawberry red color. No doubt you will want to cut them for gorgeous winter arrangements, both indoors and out.
#ProPlantTips for Care
Plant in full sun for the brightest color. Although Strawberry Daiquiri will grow in partial shade, you’ll get the brightest stems for winter with at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day.
Like most Dogwoods, it will love well-drained soil. However, it is widely adaptable to most soils, including those that might be wet on occasion.
Provide a moderate amount of water on a regular basis. If you don’t receive rainfall, use the Finger Test to see when your plant needs water. Use your finger to check below the surface of the soil, near the base of the shrub.
If the soil is moist, you can skip watering that day. If it is getting dry, it is time to get your hose out and water.
Plan to do renewal pruning to keep your shrub in tip-top condition. In fall, prune a few of the oldest, thickest branches all the way down to the ground. Use them in your Holiday and winter decor!
Leave the young, thin stems for the best, brightest winter color. You’ll love how vivid they’ll be with just a few minutes of maintenance each year.
The gorgeous, variegated foliage looks crisp and fresh all season. Flowers, berries and bright winter appeal add to the value of this ornamental charmer. Order your Strawberry Daiquiri shrubs from Nature Hills today.
