Cornus kousa var. angustata (Cornaceae)
(CORN-us KOO-sa var. an-gus-TA-ta)
Kousa Dogwood

This crop of Kousa Dogwood is grown from seed shared by Brian O'Neil, landscape designer and plantsman of Norfolk, VA. Deep-green foliage remains evergreen in zones 7 and warmer; leaves turn purplish-burgundy with colder temperatures. Flowers, composed of four milky-white bracts, appear in great abundance and shine like stars along the branches. Flowering occurs in late spring after our native Dogwood has finished blooming. Interesting seed pods in the fall and resistance to Dogwood anthracnose make for a pretty wonderful small tree! Not native.
