More Information:
NOTE BEFORE PLANTING: Dogwoods are very popular trees, but they are considered overplanted in many areas, and they are often planted in unsuitable locations where they are susceptible to leaf scorch, curling, and stunted growth. In the wild dogwoods are commonly found as understory trees. Many dogwoods are not particularly drought- or heat-tolerant, requiring irrigation during drought periods in summer. If your site is hot, dry and sunny in the summer, please consider planting an alternative tree that can thrive there.
