Kousa Pink Dogwood Tree


Dogwood trees are widely known for their delicate beauty. Along with that, came the Kousa Dogwood that adds an additional toughness to the beauty. The Kousa seems to have more full, lateral branching than traditional dogwoods. In spring, it produces pink star-like blooms. In summer, its intriguing canopy of layered branches provides shade and beauty. In autumn, it offers spectacular bright red color. Even in winter, this tree has an appeal all its own with bark that resembles a jigsaw puzzle and ping pong ball-sized edible berries that ripen. The kousa berries are a visual delight and offer a delicious treat to the wildlife who use them as a nearly endless source of food before winter. The spring blooms are probably the tree’s largest selling point. The kousa dogwood grows to a height of 15-25' and a spread of around 25' at maturity. The kousa dogwood grows in acidic, loamy, moist, sandy, well-drained and clay soils. It prefers average moisture but is somewhat drought-resistant.

Dogwood trees and shrubs are not poisonous or toxic to dogs. Kousa dogwood or Cornus Kousa is a great variety that deters deer and pest attacks.
