Caring for Dogwoods - Cornus

With dogwoods care should be taken in selecting an appropriate planting site. The dogwood evolved in the border regions of forests, and as a result prefers soil that drains well, but holds moisture. Standing water or very wet soil will not allow enough oxygen to the roots, and can suffocate the plant. Amending your soil with compost in advance of planting and maintaining a 3-4 ft. ring of organic mulch through each season will greatly benefit your dogwood.

Dogwoods are adaptable to full sun, but a tree in full sun will be under more stress than one planted in partial sun, partial shade, or dappled light. If a tree is in full sun, special care should be taken to provide good soil conditions, remove competitive grass , and mulch in a 3-4 foot ring. Additional watering may be required for a dogwood in full sun and water should be applied slowly and deeply to the area surrounding the tree.
