What is a good canopy tree to plant around a dogwood tree?
Donna B on May 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: A redbud would be particularly pretty in the spring, with its rose-colored buds over the white dogwood: //www.starkbros.com/products/landscape-trees/flowering-trees/american-redbud

I would like to plant a Dogwood, but it will get direct sun for 5 -6 hours a day..What are my chances of success?
happy gardner on May 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: A dogwood is not a full-sun tree and is fond of part shade, especially in the afternoon. If that is how your sun pattern works, then the tree will do quite well.
Hi, Do the flowers of this dogwood come before the leaves?

What species is it?

I have a 42 foot frontage on my house. I'd like to buy a white dogwood for each side. Sidewalk in middle. Do you think this would be too much for an area like that? And I would need to keep it somewhat pruned.
Linda on Feb 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: That would be quite beautiful. If you plant the trees 12' away from the sidewalk on either side, that will be enough space and also keep any tree roots from upheaving your sidewalk.
Is this a Kousa Dogwood? If not what type is it? Thanks
