Re: Pagoda dogwood

How do Pagodas hold up in our climate? I've always wanted one, but dogwoods do not seem to do well in my area (dogwoods and rhododendrons are the only shrubs/trees that nurseries will not guarantee). They do alright in town, but out here in the county....put it this way - I planted four Cornus florida, lost three, and the fourth is clinging to life by its root hairs.

Still raining and temps down to 40 last night but, wow, the garden looks
like a jungle with its lush growth. My husband took down the Prariefire Crab
which I think I talked before about its displeasing growth habit. I'm not
sure what all is looked at when selecting a tree of the year but obviously
this is not included. It had beautiful spring color and is disease resistant
but ..... I am replacing it with a Pagoda Dogwood which I talked with a
nursery last fall and they are holding my pick. We had to remove a PD when we
added on the garden room. I love the layered form and all-season interest of
this tree.
