The Chinese Kousa Dogwood is set apart from all other forms of the species by its larger leaves, floral bracts and fruit. This beautiful small tree can be relied upon to produce a profuse cloak of classic broad white 'flowers' in late spring, all displayed against a lush background of dark green foliage. The white bracts blush pink as they age. Golf ball sized pinkish red fruit adorn the tree into autumn.
