|Cornus Kousa 'Satomi'
|Full Sun to Partial Shade
ℹ A head-turning specimen tree that will work hard to prove it deserves that prime planting location you give it by a busy sidewalk or near your front entrance or back patio. It never has an off-season! In late spring, the starry, strawberry-milkshake-pink flowers hold court. In summer, the lush green foliage takes over and the funny Cap’n-Crunchberry-like fruits form (they’re edible and have a tropical fruit flavor). Cool weather brings spectacular purple and raspberry-red foliage to your landscape, and in winter, it’s all about the marvelous jigsaw-puzzle bark. To top it all off, being a Japanese Kousa Dogwood, Satomi is pretty much immune to the pests and diseases that can trouble other Dogwood trees!
