Cornus 'Kousa' DogwoodCornus kousa
This small tree is a late bloomer, covered with outstanding white star-like spring blooms. A strawberry-like fruit decorates this tree in the fall. The lustrous dark green leaves tint red in the fall. Grows 20 to 30 feet tall and wide.
Clusters of white flowers bloom in mid-spring and small blue fruits ripen mid to late fall attracting hungry birds. Red dogwood flowering shrubs makes your winter garden attractive to variable butterflies or hummingbirds.
Upright, bright red twigs in winter glow against the snow or black earth in sun, and on cloudy days too. Ideal as a single plant in a smaller garden, or mass-planted in a larger one. Grow as a backdrop to beds, around your home, as an informal hedge.
