The Cornus Kousa are large slow growing shrubs that derive from Japan. These beautiful shrubs produce pretty flowers of white and pink that flower from between April to June; they then deliver deep pink strawberry-like fruit. The pretty flowers and fruit sit above deciduous, bushy foliage that begins the year a luscious forest green that transforms to dazzling bronze and finally crimson shades as the year progresses. These outstanding shrubs make a spectacular display when planted together in garden borders or containers where they reach a mature height and spread of up to 3m. The collection includes one of each variety: alba 'Kesselringii', 'Sibirica', and Kousa. Supplied as 40-50cm plants in a 3 litre pot or a rootball.

Planting & Growing Instructions
The cornus (dogwood) is an amazing and unique addition to any garden display, as it will produce wonderfully colourful shoots in winter. Will thrive in full sun or partial shade, and require little pruning, though you can prune back in mid-spring to help keep a comfortable shape. Make sure they get plenty of water in the dry season. Suitable for planting in most types of soil, and if you have the space then we recommend that you plant in groups of three for an even spread.
