place for planting dogwood

Hello, I want to ask you for advice about planting dogwood.
- I want to plant Cornus alba 'Sibirica' near the front door to have gorgeous color against the light wall in winter. The house is located in a pretty sunny region - the sun is shining more than 200 days per year. Is east-facing side would be enough exposed for bright color of the bark?
- I want to keep this shrub under 6 feet high because of the window above. So I'm planning to prune each year in early spring (beginning of April?). What hight it would be in May-June in this case? I worry if it will be an empty place in the entrance border in late spring and early summer.
Right, not the UK
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
They really do not like dry conditions.
When you don't even know who's in the team
Thank you for the warning. Now I doubt that I can grow happy dogwood. Maybe I need to postpone the decision about planting dogwood for a year in order to know my conditions better (how hard is to keep my soil dump in partial shade in summer).
