Dogwood Kousa location to plant?
I live in Western Massachusetts and have a dogwood Kousa I am going to plant this week (I know it's the worst time to plant but we completely re-landscaped the yard and my contractor started the project late so what can you do?) and I have been told mixed reports re position to plantÃ¯Â¿Â½ideally I want to plant at the front of the house as a specimen tree which is full sun from about 10am onwards to about 5pm
I have read that they prefer morning sun and some afternoon shade and other reports that they love full sun so long as they are well irrigated (which it would be)Ã¯Â¿Â½when we had it delivered it was suffering from leaf curl from being scorched in the very hot sun at the nursery and I don't think they had been watering it properly though it had a water bag around itÃ¯Â¿Â½since I have had it despite still being in the pot it seems a little happier with less curl (I have been soaking every day in this hot weather)
Thought on best place to plant?
