Re: smoke tree

Tigerlily, Dirr lists Cornus alternifolia size 15-25' in ht and 1 1/2 times 
that is spread.  If you select a multi stem one, which I love, the spread is 
probably going to be more.  When I planted my first one I did not allow 
enough space for the spread and was always pruning the side next to the 
house.  It maintained a nice appearance because you viewed it from 2 sides.  
This time when I plant I have plenty of space all around.  I find it is 
disappointing to be so pleased with a plant but not have allowed enough 
space.  The spread on this is truly a good part of its beauty.  Scale can be 
a problem on this tree.  I had a problem the first or second year and I 
literally scraped it from the bark to assure myself I had gotten all those 
frightful little suckers.
