The Pink Kousa Dogwood is perhaps the most disease & insect resistant flowering tree you can find.
Unlike regular Dogwood Trees the Pink Kousa is so easy to grow that the University of Connecticut's horticultural department has called it "problem free".
Since it is so low maintenance (and so colorful), it is often used by landscape designers as a quick and easy way to boost property value in new, high-end homes.
In late spring, your Kousa Dogwood will display bright pink blooms... after your tree has leafed out.
These pink flowers look so much brighter against a green, leafy background. They really pop!
And since they bloom at the end of May, you don't have to worry about a late freeze wilting your pink flowers!
Your pink kousa dogwood will be the envy of the neighborhood.
You'll want to plant several of these for both your front and back yard. They work well in groupings or borders. Odd groups of three, five, and seven look very pleasing to the eye.
This is one of the best flowering trees for small landscapes.
Plant these in full sun to partial sun, and enjoy your kousa dogwood's beauty!
In the fall, the dark green leaves develop into an attractive reddish-purple that hold their color for several weeks. The fruit attracts all sorts of colorful wildlife!
Kousa dogwoods have a vase-shaped form that becomes more rounded with age, with distinct horizontal branches.
They're consistently uniform, so they always look like you just shaped them into a perfectly symmetrical tree!
For a spectacular layered landscape effect, plant one or more of these trees near large deciduous trees or pines. The background will help the color pop even more... allowing your tree to be the focal point of your landscape!
Your Kousa Dogwood will reach about 15-25 feet tall... the perfect height for a flowering ornamental tree.
