White Kousa Dogwood

Beautiful All Year Round

Height:

The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back the growth that was trimmed.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you better results the first full growing season.

Highly disease resistant and trouble free.

White springtime blooms and red berries last for months, followed by striking red and purple hues just in time for the autumn season.

Even in winter, the eye-catching bark and form of the Kousa bring a unique beauty to your landscape.

Distinctive vase shape makes this tree ideal for border and foundation planting, though it can stand alone as a showpiece tree with ease.

Attracts wildlife of all sorts, and provides a safe haven for birds in the winter time! Its small frame makes it ideal for tight areas, especially for under power lines!

The shallow root system of the Kousa makes it a perfect tree to plant near homes without fear of the roots damaging any structures.

The Kousa Dogwood flowers about a month later than the standard Dogwood. It has leaves when it flowers, which make an attractive backdrop. Kousa seems to do better at temperature extremes, both cold and hot.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

It's Easy to Plant your White Kousa Dogwood


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your White Kousa Dogwood.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your White Kousa Dogwood gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your White Kousa Dogwood again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

By: Mary Watson
Ordered a small Kousa Dogwood last year. In advance of receiving the tree I amended the soil, built a little area about 5' diameter and then when it arrived, I planted the tree promptly, following the instructions. I left a small part of the large upper roots (forget what they're called) slightly exposed based on reading about these trees, and mulched the entire area. It just looked like a bent dead stick for a long time, and seemed to take forever to leaf out, but I watered faithfully and the Kousa turned out to be a lovely tree with vibrant Autumn foliage, and has straightened out as well. It is showing signs of life this winter season so I expect it will leaf out sooner this year.

STUNNING! We have one of these beautiful trees in our landscape beds a mere 5ft from the house, it is small and STUNNING people constantly stop in front of our house and ask what kind of tree it is! We live in Michigan and the blossoms are always out and in full color by my birthday, June 9th!!

I love the holly. I'm thinking I might have to snip a bit from the bush at work. Ha! I'm all about using what you have or a tiny bduegt! I LOVE seeing others creativity in this manner. So I can't wait to see what else you do!

By: Thomas Slaughter
Trees arrived in good shape. I planted them a few days later and they are growing well.

By: Nell Miller
I purchased approx 15 dogwoods and these were the only ones that didn't bloom this year except for the ones we spoke of that had died. The tree looked fine just no blooms the first year . Hoping for blooms in the spring and if not I will look further into the problem but loved the plant it was pretty and full.

How many years for the Kousa Dogwood to mature?
A shopper on May 31, 2014
Best Answer: I'm not an expert but the white ones I purchased for my neighbor grow VERY slowly. I tried to warn her that they would take a long time to mature. I purchased the pink kousas for under the power lines at my house. They definitely grow faster than the white ones. This is my third Spring with the pinks and they have grown about 4 feet taller and about 2 feet wide. The stems are still small - maybe 2.5 to 3 inches around. My understanding is that the dogwoods are simply slow growers, with those white ones being slower than the pink ones. Once they get fully established, I think they start picking up the pace a bit.

We're looking for a bush/small tree and this White Kousa Dogwood sounds like it might work. How much of the 3-4 foot tree is "trunk" and how much would be branches/leaves? Anyway we could see an example of one that would be shipped before we buy?
terri m on Jun 18, 2014
Best Answer: The White Kousa Dogwood starts the branch out around 3 to 4 feet tall. It gets between 15 to 25 feet tall and has a lot of foliage. We do not currently have a photo of them, but they're leafing out beautifully.

when can you prune branches and shape tree?
A shopper on Jun 5, 2014
Best Answer: Since my Kousa is only one year old----I don't know the answer to this. It's too soon to prune yet. But I will say this Dogwood stood tall during the severe winter we had here in the Mountains and looks very lush and green right now. Probably won't see any flowers until next year, and then we can talk about pruning.

Our dogwood needs pruning - what is the best way to do this and still keep the lovely form? We need to keep the height to about 12 ft.
Susan P on Jun 16, 2014
Best Answer: In the fall when your tree is dormant cut back the branches to your desired shape and height. Make the cuts are 45 degree angles facing upwards to promote new growth.
