Kousa Dogwood

14 Mar , 2015  

cornus kousa Kousa DogwoodLatin Name: Cornus kousa

Description: Kousa Dogwood is somewhat sensitive to being transplanted in Autumn, and care should be taken to amend the soil, fertilize, water thoroughly, mulch adequately, and avoid Winter salt spray, to enhance survival chances during the first Winter (this advisory is less critical for those shrubs transplanted from containers, rather than root-pruned ball and burlap specimens) globular green fruits turn to pink, then dull red in September, resembling large solitary upright raspberries on a 2″ peduncle (fruiting stalk)
