Cornus kousa Chinensis is an attractive, large, deciduous shrub or small tree with vase-shaped to rounded habit, exfoliating bark, and oval, dark green leaves that turn deep red and scarlet in autumn. Small, yellowish-green flower-heads are surrounded by four large, petal-like, creamy white bracts. Masses of these beautiful, star-shaped flowers cover the whole shrub in May and June, and are followed by berry-like, pinkish fruits, mostly eaten by birds. Cornus kousa Chinensis prefers organically rich, medium moisture, slightly acidic, well-drained soils. It thrives in full sun, but tolerates partial shade, and needs regular watering in dry weather. It is generally, pest-free and disease-free. It can withstand some frost and wind. Doesn’t require pruning. Cornus kousa Chinensis is a stunning plant with abundance of lovely, white flowers, attractive pink fruit and beautiful autumn foliage, therefore, a perfect specimen plant for any small garden. Great in groups around the house, in lawns and shrub borders.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
