Kousa Dogwood Product Details

Botanical Name: Cornus Kousa

Height: 15 - 25 feet tall, vase shaped, strong.

Spacing: 18 - 20 feet.

Depth: Soak the roots 2 - 6 hours before planting. Dig a hole large enough to accommodate the roots without bending them. Plant so the stain on the trunk is the same level as previously planted. Work the soil around the roots.

Spread: 18 - 20 feet.

Sun/Shade: Full sun to partial shade.

Color: White, blossoms are not fragrant.

Foliage: Elliptic to ovate leaves, purple and scarlet in the fall.

Blooms: Early Summer for several weeks.

Fruit: Large, pendulous, dull, red, raspberry looking fruit 1" - 1 1/2" in diameter.

Flower Form: Insignificant, set in the center of four large decorative bracts 1" - 2" long and 1/4"-3/4" wide.

Soil Requirements: Perfers an acid, humus enriched soil that is well drained.

Growth Rate: Slow to medium.

Pruning: Only for aesthetics in February.

Comments: One of the most outstanding ornamental trees. A beautiful horizontal branching habit on a vase shaped silouette that is attractive year-round, large showy flowers, large red fruit in late Summer - Fall and handsome foliage that turns a rich scarlet in the Fall. As the tree matures the bark exfoliates, developing a beautiful mottled coloration in grey, cinnamon, brown and beige. The "flowers" are on 1" - 1 1/2" stems and lay flat on top of the foliage, covering the whole tree in a drift of color. A magnificent tree for all seasons. Best grown in open shade.

I bought this tree two years ago and it has not grown more than a 1inch in that time. I have never seen a flower on this tree either. Very dissapointed, all the other trees I have bought have florished.

This Dogwood tree was noticed by everyone who came over. It is a all seasons tree from the flowers in the early summer to the changes in the color in the leaves by fall. I Love this tree
