Beautiful All Year Round

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.

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!
January 1, 2013
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.

Kousa Dogwood Delight
My Kousa Dogwood bloomed the second year and following that was covered with blooms each spring. Fast growing, easy care and It is a delight to see. I enjoy the fact that it blooms after the other Dogwood trees so you have a longer time of enjoying the blooms.

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.

Love these trees!
The tree was shipped very carefully -- no broken branches, and still moist at the root. My other Kousas, purchased a few years ago, just produced flowers this year. It takes a while for them to flower, but when they do, they are truly beautiful. A very pleased customer.

Trees arrived in good shape. I planted them a few days later and they are growing well.
January 1, 2013
The tree arrived in perfect condition. It is a hardy, attractive specimen, and a very good price. Nurseries in this area had some unhealthy looking plants at a much higher price. I am very pleased with my purchase and the company itself.

We had to take pics and you replaced three trees that died. We have six planted now and two of them look great, three are struggling and one died. The two that are growing are green and healthy. All are planted in the same area. We think because the roots were dry when delivered, the trees had a hard time adjusting and growing.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for 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.

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.

Planting & Care

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.

Recommended by a landscape designer and we also have one growing in our neighborhood and have admired it for a number of years. While we are re-doing some planting areas is the perfect time to plant the Kousa Dogwood.

I have seen this dogwood around the neighbor hood and it blooms after the spring burst and last a long time. Hoping this will be good addition to my cherry tree.

Small tree grows slow
Randel b on Jan 24, 2017
This is the first tree of its kind that I have ever seen. It looks so lovely in bloom, and we look forward to Springtime. It is very delicate, but seems strong, and has withstood storms and winds so far. It is touted to be fine for our zone, 5. We planted it alone as a feature unto itself, although I read that it can do nicely as part of a cluster of plants because of its small size.
Lillian T on Nov 16, 2016
I started seeing flowers this spring. Unfortunately a family of deer ate the leaves and stripped the bark from the trunk. I cut it until that part that has no bark. I'm hoping it will not die.

deb h on Nov 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Cornus kousa is the botanical name.
when can you prune branches and shape tree?
A shopper on Jun 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Fall is the best time to prune any tree. The sap is down and it puts less stress on the tree.
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.
How many years for the Kousa Dogwood to mature?
A shopper on May 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The White Kousa Dogwoods have a medium growth rate of about 13 to 24 inches per year. Older trees slow down, growing 12 inches or less per year.
Have the lower branches of the Cornus Kousa shown in this picture been pruned since I have seen pics on other sites where the lower branches grow much closer to the ground?
Dennis C on Apr 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Dennis, Not sure about the Kousa in the photo. However, I did prune the lower branches on our Kousas because I like the look of a tree rather than a bush. Also, we have many deer where we live, and pruning the lower branches reduces the chance that they will munch on them (which they DO, even though the Kousa is supposed to be deer resistant.)
how should the this tree be protected from deer?
donna b on Aug 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I hanged plastic mesh bags with small chunks of Irish Spring Soap in them. It ha worked so far this year. Hang the bags right where their noses would hit the smell!! I lots lots of lower leaves last year.

Is this deer resistant?
Karen C on May 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: NO!! We have lots of deer in our neighborhood, and they chewed off the leaves of one of our Kousa dogwoods up to their browse line. This year I hung out plastic mesh bags with small chunks of Irish Spring soap around the bottom limbs, not only of the Kousa dogwoods but also our other deer "salads." It has worked so far!!!
My tree appears healthy, but no blooms. It's been 7 years. Why not blooming?
Marts S on Apr 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I am of the understanding that the Kousa does require some sun, as opposed to the Florida Dogwood. If yours is in shade, that may be the problem. Our 3-year-old Kousas (last year) bloomed sporadically. This year they have many buds that are about to open. Our neighbor has a Kousa in the shade, and it does not bloomed. Hope I have helped.
When is the best time to plant a new Kousa Dogwood?
Chad K on Feb 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Spring of Fall is fine. The only recommendation is if you are in zone 8, make sure it gets some afternoon shade. They say it can handle the sun, but it along with the heat is too much in the southeast.
When is the best time to plant a White Kousa Dogwood? I live on the California North Coast
Gay M on Aug 18, 2016

Do you happen to know how well the White Kousa Dogwood would tolerate Utah's brutal summer heat and dryness?
Mozart on Mar 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I can't provide you an answer yet--I just bought this tree last spring. I am in the foothills of CO, hoping this baby makes it to bloom (is only 2 ft tall right now). So far so good.
We have huge temperature swings in the spring-- Regardless--I suspect you will need to place it in a spot sheltered from all day sun. And irrigate well for a few years until established.
The White Kousa Dogwood I want to buy grows in growing zones 5-8, but I live in zone 9...Does that mean that it won't be healthy or could even die if I buy it anyway?
Steven K on Sep 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My opinion (only) is that it would be easier to grow in a warmer climate...just keep it watered, and perhaps put in partial shade. Mine hasn't bloomed yet, so I'm waiting and waiting...perhaps next year. I probably should feed it more, as I don't--feeling nature should take its way. I hope this is somewhat helpful.
I have full sun, does this tree grow well in full sun, heat and high humidity. Also have very cold winters. Do they need special care for winter?
Anita on Aug 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My white kousa is planted under some tall pines in my yard so it doesn't get a lot of sun. While it's a pretty slow grower, it lives it there. It's a baby, planted a little less than a year ago. I haven't seen blossoms yet. We're in northern utah. Will terse are snowy cold but rarely below zero. I bought a pink dogwood at the same time for my front yard. It gets full sun but doesn't seem to like it. Leaves are dry and sad looking. No blossoms there either. It's putting forth new growth now tho, so we'll see. Hope this helps.
my new kousa dogwood is about 6 feet tall with leaves all the way to the ground. I want it to look like a tree not a bush, should I cut the stems near the bottom and if so how far up should I go?
mfoley on Jun 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can certainly prune off the bottom branches of your Cornus kousa if you want to show the trunk of the tree. I would start with 18-20 inches from the ground, and as the tree gets older and bigger, you can limb it up to a higher height until you have the amount of clearance you want.
How wide is roots?
hazel l on Apr 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The roots will get as wide of the drip line of 25 feet.
How large are the Japanese dogwoods when you receive them and are they burlaped, bare root, or containered?
Donna S on Sep 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Currently our White Kousa Dogwoods are 3-4 ft tall and shipped in pots.
what are the berries, seeds, or edible?
windy s on Sep 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The berries are out on my dogwood now. They are really cool looking, round, hard, very red, with small bumps on them--about the size of a cherry. They are not edible.
my dogwood tree has tiny white flowers early now little berries , when I bought it he said it was a padgoda Dogwood do you have them ?? my tree is dieing
Dottie L on Jun 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Our White Kousa Dogwood is the Cornus kousa variety also known as the Padgoda which produces berries.
