Kousa Dogwood Tree
The kousa dogwood tree is a beautiful landscape tree that provides year-round beauty. The tree has bright white flowers that bloom from May to June. It also produces a drupe, which is pinkish red and is an attractive food for songbirds. The leaves are 2 - 4 inches long and are dark green. Squirrels and birds can eat Kousa dogwood seeds. The tree is native to Japan, Korea, and China. It was first documented in the United States in 1875. The tree's growth is slow to medium, taking many years to reach maturity. Best grown in humusy, organically rich, medium moisture, acidic to neutral, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Performs well in sandy loams. Appreciates regular moisture during hot summers. No serious insect or disease problems. This plant has better disease resistance and better cold hardiness than flowering dogwood, Cornus florida, and is an excellent alternative to flowering dogwood in areas where dogwood anthracnose is a problem.
