Cornus kousa <p> May 18

Cornus kousa

May 18


Kousa Dogwood is a later blooming variety with pointed white bracts (they are not petals). The fruit is much larger than that of Cornus florida (common White Flowering Dogwood) and looks like a strawberry. The blooms usually set about 6 weeks later than common Dogwood.

ALTERNATE: (a little spider I found hiding on a bloom)

other sizes: small medium large original

Nice one. The open petals look a bit like a propeller.

Beautifully done. You're educating me on all these botanical names. (Is this dogwood?)
