Description

Available Spring 2020 - A rare and slow growing selection, Cornus kousa 'Snowboy' has lovely white-edged, grey-green leaves which give a superb display of variegated foliage. In the autumn the variegated leaves turn shades of pink and red before falling.

Unusually for a Cornus kousa, this is grown more for its beautiful foliage rather then flower bracts and prefers a sheltered position in partial shade, where the delicate leaves will not scorch or burn in strong sunlight.
