Where to Plant a Pagoda Dogwood Tree

Pagoda dogwood (Cornus alternifolia) is 15-to-25-foot tree with horizontal branches and late-spring clusters of creamy white blooms. Attractive near patios or in landscape groups, it performs best in full sun--with afternoon shade in hot areas--to partial shade. Plant it in well-drained, fertile and consistently moist soil.
