Further Information

This Japanese selection of the Chinese flowering dogwood is named after the granddaughter of the Japanese nurseryman who discovered it and is one of the finest large shrubs or small trees in cultivation.

Cornus kousa is native to Manchuria, North Eastern China, noted for bitterly cold winters so they are fully hardy, even in the north of Scotland. However they do enjoy summer heat which ripens the young growths and causes flower bud initiation. How well they flower in midsummer is determined by the weather during the previous July so plant in a warm, sunny situation if possible.
