A beautiful garden tree thriving on non alkaline soil.
Introduced in the late 1970s and selected in Holland, this variety has large bracts, great autumn colour and good sized fruits.
Plants as small as 40-60cm are capable of setting flower buds making this an ideal garden tree that exhibits lots of interest.
Flowers are borne in abundance in early spring and the foliage turns vivid colours by autumn.
Supplied as a maturing bushy shrub, it will eventually make a small tree.
Cornus kousa types do not thrive in alkaline soils, they just linger.
Best only to plant on ground with a ph less than 7 and to avoid waterlogged or compacted soils.
Mature height: 5m
