I'll admit to being a bit apprehensive when my tree arrived. It was dormant. It arrived the same time as the kwanzan cherry trees which also were dormant. I planted them all the same day. The cherry trees took off and are growing at an amazing rate. After 5-weeks the kousa is starting to bud and looks good. It's a welcome addition and my wife loves the tree! Will buy from this nursery again.
Quick ship by these folks. Got the trees in the ground just in time for rains this week. Will do business with TN nursery again.
THe package arrived in great shape and the dormant trees appeared to be in good shape. As the have only been in the ground a few days I can’t tell if they are going to survive or not but as of now they get a 5 star rating.
Arrived fast and packaged well. Can't wait to see it grow. Thank you.

Kousa Dogwood is a Small, Ornamental Tree
Kousa dogwood is a small, compact tree with shallow roots that blooms white in the spring. The compact nature of the kousa dogwood tree makes it a good option for urban landscapes in zones 5 through 8. Reaching heights of 15 to 25 feet, the kousa dogwood provides color in the spring and shade all summer long. In autumn, its foliage turns bright red. This tree produces fruit in the form of a small, red berry that’s often used in wine-making. Originating in East Asia, the kousa dogwood tree has been naturalized in New York State.
Kousa Dogwood Tree Prefers Well-Drained, Acidic Soil
Kousa dogwood thrives best in partial to full sun in soil that’s sandy and acidic. It is somewhat drought- and disease-resistant, which makes it easy to grow. It prefers at least 4 hours of direct sunlight daily, and under ideal conditions, can grow between 1 and 2 feet per year.
Plant kousa dogwood in a hole as deep as the root ball but twice as wide. Use organic mulch in and around the roots as you settle the tree into the ground. Set the young tree into the ground, so the flare of the trunk is even with the top of the soil and fill in around the roots—water well after planting and for the first week going forward.
The shallow root system of the kousa dogwood tree makes it an excellent choice for planting near walls, buildings, or walkways, and its short, compact stature prevents it from growing into utility lines or hanging over roadways. It matures in a rounded shape, and its fruit naturally attracts songbirds. The seeds of the kousa dogwood are also attractive to squirrels.
Kousa Dogwood Tree Blooms May Through June
The kousa dogwood is native to Japan, China, and Korea and goes by many names. These include Japanese dogwood, Chinese dogwood, Japanese flowering dogwood, and Japanese strawberry tree. Throughout the warmer months, it features dark-green, elliptical-shaped leaves that grow to 4 inches in length. The kousa dogwood blooms from May through June, bursting into beautiful white flowers with centers of greenish-gold. In autumn, its leave turns brilliant colors of scarlet and purple.
