    A Cherokee Chief Dogwood is hardy in zones 5-9.
    This tree reaches a mature size of 15 to 20 feet tall and a width of 20 to 25 feet wide.
    A dwarf Dogwood variety may be a better choice for planting in a container.
    Depending on the size of tree that you start with, an 85 gallon container is likely too large to start out with.
