Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
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').
