I bought 2 pygmy dogwoods from Wayside/Park more than 10 years ago. I love them. When they are in bloom, everyone wants to know more about them. My soil is so heavily amended and rich that most other plants exceed the expected heights. These dogwoods have stayed true to the description - under 7 feet tall and have beautiful structures. They are loaded with flowers every spring. One other thing - I have had trouble getting standard sized dogwoods to grow. I don't know if these are more hardy or if their small size permitted me to put them in more protected locations. If you are on the fence, get them - they are probably the best mail-order plant purchase I ever made.
