Expect this dogwood to reach its mature size of 20 feet tall and wide in roughly 20 years. Hardy in Zones 6-9.
If impatiens are your go-to favorite for shade gardens, check out double impatiens like the Rockapulco series, including Appleblossom (above). Double impatiens unfurl rose-like blooms that blanket plants all summer long. There’s no need to remove spent flowers, and plants never need trimming, unless you want to do so to maintain a certain size. Plants flower best in full to part shade. Look for Rockapulco varieties with blossoms in shades of orange, orchid, purple, red and white. Plants grow 10 to 20 inches tall and 12 to 24 inches wide.
