This is the 2nd full summer I've had this dogwood, and I like it very much. Tolerates wet & frequent flooding (last summer), but seems drought tolerant once established (this summer). It's slow growing, but shows lots of healthy new green growth tinged red & nice shape with no pruning. Mine is in part-shade, under a walnut tree, mulched with stone. (Zone 5)
