Stellar Dogwoods


Set plants to allow for ultimate growth, which is about 15 to 20 feet across. They are at home in partial shade but will flourish in full sun, particularly farther north. Choose a soil that is acid, well-drained and high in organic content – good drainage is essential.


Mulch to conserve moisture and to provide a cool root run. Keep well-watered, especially during periods of drought. Prune in early spring after flowers fade, but only to shape.
