There are so many Dog Wood shrubs / trees that if I were you, I would go to the parks, golf clubs and your local community departments for a list of these types of plants that grow in most types of soil.
There are so many colours of foliage AND trunk / branches, all shape of leaves and flowers, it really is a large family and I guess there will be many types that are suitable for your needs, here we grow the coloured stemmed type that we prune early spring to help the plant / shrubs to produce more new colourful branches that are bare in spring and the foliage follows later, they are a lovely family of plants IF chosen with care.
Good luck, WeeNel.
You tryin' to imply I'm a less-than-classy dame? That's about right. More than once I've been accused of being a boorish Yankee despite my southern accent. I'm ever thankful for the people who put up with me.
