Light for red and yellow twig dogwood
Question for you good folks...
I have read that full sun is best for bringing out the color in cornus sericea and cornus alba, but the place I have in mind would only get full sun after the leaves have fallen from the nearby oaks. During the spring and summer, the spot gets a few hours of morning sun, then filtered light all day.
So, is the brighter twig color a result of more sun on the twigs once the leaves are fallen, or is it a result of strong sun throughout the growing season? Anyone happy with their winter color in less than full sun exposures?
