'Golden Glory' cherry dogwood is a great and tough plant. A group of six of these were among the first plants installed here, when no water was available to support them. They've never looked back.

Drought tolerant to a fault, flowering regularly every late winter (and mid-winter when mild enough, like today 01/14/07), clean green foliage all summer...this is a reliable performer. It has not set much fruit by itself, but this year it will have some dissimilar clones flowering nearby so we'll see if that helps.

'Golden Glory' has a much more upright barrel-shaped habit, compared to the very wide-spreading rounded shape of the species. This lends a more formal air to the plant, and makes it suitable for somewhat smaller spaces.

Regional...

This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

Winnetka, Illinois
Georgetown, Kentucky
