The greensleeves kousa dogwood is another unique variety of the Asian dogwoods. In the early summer the white bracts open with bright green highlights and slowly change to a creamy white. This occurs against the background of the glossy, dark green leaves making a wonderfully showy display. It has a lovely low branching vase like form making it a beautiful, ornamental stand alone or garden tree. It also has a lovely fall color of red to reddish purple foliage and the fall fruit will attract wildlife. It is a hardy tree that performs well in full sun or partial shade conditions.

The tree arrived in great shape box was bent slightly but the tree was ok. It looked good and was planted right away. Plenty of spring rain the last view days.
