In which location does the dogwood feel particularly comfortable?
As a rule, the dogwood prefers a sunny to slightly shady location, but some species are satisfied with a shady spot. The pagoda dogwood (Cornus controversus) and the carpet dogwood (Cornus canadensis), for example, tolerate shade.
- Dogwood blooms in late spring
- Perfect for large gardens: dogwood as a hedge
- Most dogwoods thrive in a spot with light partial shade
In which substrate should the dogwood be placed?
When it comes to choosing a substrate, it's a little more difficult. Some species prefer an acidic bog bed soil, while others need a calcareous substrate.
|Dogwood Art||Botanical name||Location||Substrate|
|White dogwood||Cornus alba||sunny to partially shaded||moist, humic|
|Pagoda dogwood||Cornus controversus||sunny to shady||slightly sour|
|Asian flower dogwood||Cornus kousa||sunny to partially shaded||permeable, slightly acidic|

When is the best time to plant dogwood?
Dogwood should be planted in spring or fall.
Which plant spacing should be kept?
Since most species can grow up to 10 meters high and several meters wide, dogwoods should be planted with as much space as possible. A distance of one meter is recommended for a hedge.
When does the dogwood have its prime?
Some dogwood species bloom before they shoot in March to April, others between May and June.
How can dogwood be propagated?
Dogwood can be propagated either from seeds or from cuttings, although you have to be patient in the first few years: Then the young wood grows very slowly.
Good Neighbors / Bad Neighbors
The choice of underplanting or neighboring plants - if you want to set up a hedge - is primarily dependent on the special requirements of the individual species in terms of location and soil (see table!).
There are also dogwood species (e.g. the carpet dogwood) that grow crawling and are therefore suitable for underplanting or as a ground cover.
