A spectacular large shrub or eventually small tree, Cornus x 'Eddie's White Wonder' has lovely, huge, creamy-white flower bracts in early summer. It was first selected by a British Columbia nurseryman called Henry Matheson, Eddie. These flower bracts appear on this cultivar earlier in the year than than on other Cornus kousa listed here.

The leaves are bright green in spring / summer and in a good year will turn a fantastic, rich strawberry pink / red in autumn. Cornus x 'Eddie's White Wonder' is an unusual and delightful garden plant with sensational flower bracts!

Looks very nice when planted near Cornus kousa 'China Girl', another dogwood with white bracts which flowers a little later, so the bracts of the 'China Girl' are coming into their best as the bracts of the 'Eddies White Wonder' fade and go over.
