A handsome tree once established, Cornus controversa is native to a large part of Eastern Asia and develops an eye-catching tiered habit over time. It is a deciduous tree with dark green leaves in spring and summer, turning shades of purple and dark red/orange before falling in autumn. Clusters of small white flower appear in early summer on mature plants which are followed by black fruit.
