Golden Shadows Dogwood Performance
Can you show me yours?
I got one for $35, about 5'. Doesn't have the nicest form and NONE of them did at the store, not like a regular Pagoda Dogwood might have after 3 years in a pot at the nursery. (They told me they've had them that long.)
Question...does anyone have one that actually turns into a nice tree (or shrub) like a regular Pagoda Dogwood? Or....does it sort of just have that gentle, airy & open non-uniform look even after 5 years.
I am trying to decide where to put mine...whether to use it as a "shrub/tree" in the border where it would stand its ground and fill out its space....OR to use it more like an airy accent daintily hovering over a hosta bed. (This 2nd way is the only way I have seen it in photos.)
And if I can ask one more question....could it take a full eastern exposure until 1 pm here in my northern climate?
Thanks everyone...if you have pics, it would be AWESOME!
