Product Details

Small specimens ar supplied at 1.5-2m tall

Cornus kousa China Girl is an attractive, early flowering form of Dogwood introduced from Holland in the late 1970s.

The foliage of this small garden tree is dark green in summer, turning to reds and oranges in winter time.  In the summer the leaves often take up a slightly curled up appearance, which is completely normal for this species.  The Chinese Dogwoods are renowned for their beautiful and abundant bract like flowers which are produced in early spring, followed by bright red strawberry like fruits that continue to add interest to this specimen throughout the summer months and into autumn.

Cornus kousa China Girl is supplied from Barcham as a maturing, bushy shrub, this makes the most of available branches for profuse flowering.  Generally Cornus kousa varieties prefer the soil to be well drained and do not thrive at all on alkaline soils, they simply linger in a soil with a pH of more than 7 sadly, so should be avoided in these cases as you will be disappointed.

The Chinese Dogwoods make very good garden trees; they are slow growing, small, produce a spectacular floral display and are relatively low maintenance.  Sadly they do come with a word of caution in that they are not alkaline loving and thus whilst you should not be deterred by this, simply ensure you check the pH of your soil before planting if you do not know what it is.

Mature height: 3-7m

Small specimens are 1.5-2m in height.
