Kousa Dogwood (Cornus kousa)

 

 The Kousa dogwood is part of the Cornus genus, containing over twenty stunning flowering dogwood trees. 

 

This Asian native species is a deciduous ornamental tree that is well-adapted and enjoys tremendous popularity in the United States.

 

Many gardeners covet kousa dogwood trees for more than their striking white flowers--its small to medium height perfectly fits a smaller yard. It is a highly decorative tree that will not grow overly large.

 

Besides the beauty of the Kousa dogwood, the species is hardy. It is pest-resistant, cold-hardy, and drought-hardy. Kousa dogwood is an easy-to-love and even easier-to-care-for tree.

 

Kousa Dogwood Trees Are Incredibly Easy to Care For

 

Once your Kousa dogwood tree settles into place, it will give you a stunning display of showy cotton-white flowers in the late spring and a generous green canopy all summer. Fall brings purple, red, or burgundy foliage.

 

Kousa dogwood trees require filtered sun--select an appropriate site. The ideal spot would have morning sunshine and afternoon shade. However, this tree is not too picky.

 

Before you plant your Kousa dogwood trees, check for well-draining soil because they don't like wet roots. De-compact the earth and mix in a generous shovel of compost, wood mulch, or shredded leaf litter. These materials have the nutrients the dogwood tree craves.

 

Upon maturity, you need only provide routine care--fertilize your dogwood tree twice a year ( in the spring and fall), prune it when needed, and create a protective layer of mulch before the winter cold arrives.

 

The Beauty of the Kousa Dogwood Tree Will Impress You

The Kousa dogwood tree has a sturdy but relatively small trunk and multiple eye-pleasing branches. It reaches a maximum height of about thirty feet.

 

The snowy white buds will blossom into four-inch, four-petal flowers that form a stout cross shape. Each will measure up to three inches wide.

    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.

    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.
