Description

An unusual and attractive dogwood, Cornus kousa 'Mount Fuji' has masses of delicate and narrow, white flushed pink flower bracts in early to mid summer. The flowers are more compact than those of the other Cornus listed here and give this plant a unique appearance.

Although the flowers colour best in a sunny spot, we have found that if grown with a small amount of shade, the bracts of Cornus kousa 'Mount Fuji' can emerge as a jade green in colour before colouring up to white and pink later on.
