#ProPlantTips for Care:Grow in full sun to partial shade, Dogwood Trees like Cloud Nine prefer a rich, deep, well-drained soil and are not recommended for heavy, wet soils. Dogwoods are somewhat susceptible to drought, so be sure that sufficient water is provided during dry periods. They love having their root systems covered with a 3-4 inch thick layer of mulch to keep the root system evenly moist and cooler.
Prune Dogwood to shape when dormant, and remove water growth or suckers after flowering. Decide what you want to keep first, then remove crossed branches and branches heading into the interior of the canopy to open it up for sunlight penetration and air circulation.
