These beautiful, well-behaved trees won't take over your yard or your neighbor's.
Kousa dogwood (Cornus kousa).
Here's a dogwood that's just as beautiful as the flowering dogwood (C. florida) with far less susceptibility to disease. The flowers (bracts, actually) appear after the leaves emerge. Red fruits persist through fall as the leaves turn reddish-purple. Exfoliating brown, gray and tan bark and its horizontal branching pattern on older trees create some drama in winter. Selected cultivars extend winter hardiness to 20 degrees below zero, add weeping forms or produce exceptionally large flowers or fruit.
20-30 feet high and wide
USDA Zones 5-8
