Description

The 'Milky Way' kousa differentiates itself by flowering a large quantity of creamy white flowers and visible (even edible) red fruit. It is a medium sized tree that typically matures to a height of 15 to 20 ft. and has a mature spread of 15 to 20 feet. It is said that the cultivar got its name because the flowers in bloom emulate the billions of stars in the milky way galaxy clustering, swirling, and appearing in abundance.
