Description

Dogwood, Kousa 1-0 (Cornus kousa)
Zone 5-8
Full sun to shade tolerant
Kousa dogwood is a slow-growing tree that will reach heights of 20 to 30 feet. Growth is best on moist, loamy, well-drained soil (not heavy clay) with mulch or leaf litter accumulated over the roots. The red fruits are edible, and they look like a big round raspberry. Birds devour the fruit quickly. Fall color varies from dull red to maroon. This species of dogwood is anthracnose resistant, and for this reason, kousa dogwood is being widely planted as an ornamental tree in areas affected by the disease.
