The 'Milky Way' is a beautiful variety of the kousa dogwoods. It differentiates itself by flowering a large quantity of creamy white blooms in early summer and produces bright red, edible, berries in the fall. 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, and this is definitely what we have seen from it here at the nursery.

Very pleased

Two types of bare root dogwoods arrived less than a week from my order with good instructions for planting. The ground was ready to pop them right in, it rained immediately, and all is well.
