The tree is low maintenance and will excel in any soil type. As long as it has either partial or complete sunlight and a moderate amount of water, it will thrive. They grow in hardiness zones 5-9. Dogwoods don't grow exceptionally fast, so don't expect more than 1 to 2 feet of growth yearly. The lifespan of these trees is about 80 years.
