Cornus kousa is a charming, slow growing small tree or large shrub, growing to approx. 7m in maturity. With ovate green leaves in spring turning to beautiful shade of red, orange and purple in autumn. The showy long lasting white flowering bracts give a lovely display from early summer, often turning pink as they age. Strawberry-like pinkish red fruit follow, edible but not tasty.
Often grown as a specimen tree, Cornus kousa is best grown in fertile, humas rich, neutral to acid soil in full sun or partial shade with some protection. Slow growing when young, it will broaden and speed up as it ages. Minimal pruning of dead wood after flowering.
