Cornus pagoda dogwood is an excellent dogwood specimen for partial, open shady areas. These smaller, lower branched trees, grow in open irregular tier format giving a somewhat horizontal shape. It’s a hardy variety and has fragrant yellowish-white flowers. Dark berries follow to provide winter interest.

These ornamental trees are understory in their native zones hence a dappled shade location is best.

Height: 15′ – 20′

Width: 15′ – 20′

Exposure: Sun (4 hours minimum) to part or dappled shade.

Fruit / Flower: Drupe blue-black berry .5″. Yellow-white flattened clump flowers.

Fall Color: Yellow to red purple.

Water: Water needs are average requiring 1 inch of water per week in the form of rainfall or manual watering. It is a hardy ornamental tree.

Fertilizer: Use a general slow release fertilizer in early spring though this isn’t really required. Mulching over the root zone is useful.

Pruning: Prune lightly in dormancy to keep in shape and form.

Good Companion Plants:

The pagoda dogwood can be combined with a variety of other plants to create a beautiful and interesting landscape. Here are a few suggestions:

For spring blooms: Eastern redbud, flowering quince, viburnum.

For summer color: Hydrangea, butterfly bush, spirea.

For fall interest: Sugar maple, sourwood, American beech.

For winter texture: Winterberry holly, witchhazel, redtwig dogwood.
