White Kousa Dogwood Tree
Gives Year Round Beauty
A popular small white flowering tree for all seasons and reasons! It is usually multi-trunked or single with low branches. Gorgeous long-lasting white flowers cover the branches in late spring and early summer, followed by autumn fruits and leaf color, interesting winter bark and bright green spring foliage.
This tree is a real “Stop the car and find out what that is,” kind of tree.
Plant a great alternative to other flowering dogwoods, with a longer (6 weeks) and later bloom time (June and July), virtually no disease or pest problems and an alkaline (pH above 7) soil tolerance.
This tree has a vase-shaped growth habit when young, growing more horizontal with age. The plentiful white blossoms look like frosting or snow on the branches.
Use this tree in smaller tighter garden spaces, closer to the house, as a focal point in a perennial bed or as a stand alone specimen.
Attract birds with the round green raspberry-like fruits that turn to pink. Admire the ornamental mottled trunk that develops with age. Trim off lower branches to display the attractive trunk and to let in more sunshine.
It is just an all around pretty, easy to grow and carefree tree!
