Anyone had success with flowering dogwood trees?
Has anyone been successful in keeping a dogwood tree happy in central NY? My folks have had some lovely ones in California, but I wasn't sure if they can handle actual seasons...
I'd like to replace a sad little Japanese maple planted by the previous homeowners with something that will flower. The poor maple has been a collection of sticks for the past 3 years - I keep hoping each year it will turn around, but no, 15 leaves appear to be its limit! The spot is in direct sunlight and is not protected by any windbreaks.
