A winner of the Royal Horticultural Society’s First Class Certificate in 1920.
Introduced from the USA in 1835, this beautiful small tree rewards with large white floral bracts in May that are often tinged with pink. Like most ‘kousa’ types it does poorly on thin chalky soils and is best on rich fertile and free draining neutral to acid ground.
It’s attractively veined leaves turn to a yellow, occasionally red, show in autumn and it’s orange / red fruits keep the season’s interest going after its glorious floral display. A winner of the Royal Horticultural Society’s First Class Certificate in 1920, it makes a wonderful specimen tree for a small garden.
Mature height: 7-10m
