The distinguishing characteristics of the 'Satomi' or 'Miss Satomi' kousa dogwood cultivar are a gentle layered form, blooms that open white and transform into a luxurious pink, and red edible fruits. Kousa dogwoods have a later and longer bloom time and the flowers will last around 6 weeks from June to July. In the fall the fruit ripens and 'Satomi' dogwood leaves turn a deep purplish red. The mature height of this tree is 15 to 20 ft. with a mature spread of 15 to 20 ft. Like most kousa dogwoods the Satomi should be pruned carefully by someone with experience to maintain and enhance the elegant layered appearance.
