Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
This magnificent flowering dogwood makes a sensational specimen tree with plenty of interest throughout the growing season. In early summer, the small green flowers emerge, surrounded by dazzling, starry white flowers bracts in a breathtaking display. As autumn approaches the flowers are replaced by fascinating strawberry–like fruits on mature trees. Although edible, the fruits of Cornus kousa look better than they taste, so they are best left on the branches. In a final show stopping display, the bright green foliage turns to a vibrant shade of crimson-purple that is at its best when Cornus kousa is grown on fertile soil, neutral to acid soil. Supplied in a 9cm pot. Height and spread: 5m (16').

Cornus kousa can be slow to establish but after several years, growth will speed up. Water regularly throughout the growing season until young Cornus trees are fully established. Cornus kousa requires little pruning other than to maintain their shape and remove damaged stems or crossing stems.
Caution: irritant to skin and eyes. Plant Cornus in a sunny or semi shaded position, on fertile, moist, well drained, acid to neutral soil. Incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to improve the soil prior to planting, mixing it thoroughly and deeply.
