Cornus kousa Weisse Fontaine is a vase-shaped, capricious growing shrub or small tree with an interesting smooth, grey bark and semi-open crown. Oval, pointed, variegated green leaves turn orange and red in autumn. Four large, pure white, petal-like bracts surround clusters of tiny, greenish true flowers that attract bees and butterflies. Flowers are followed by pink-red, raspberry-like fruit in autumn, mostly eaten by birds. Cornus kousa Weisse Fontaine is a lovely tree with masses of flowers creating cascading fountain effect. It prefers fertile, slightly acidic, soils, moist but well-drained. It grows well in full sun and partial shade. It is resistant to frost and drought, and can withstand some wind. Generally, pest-free and disease-free. It doesn’t tolerate paving. Cornus kousa Weisse Fontaine is a lovely ornamental tree and a great addition to any small, informal, cottage or urban garden. Perfect as a specimen tree and for mixed informal borders. Suitable for growing in containers.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

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).
