Cornus kousa Chinensis (Cornus kousa (Dogwood))

Cornus kousa chinensis. White bracts on a backdrop of dark green foliage followed by red fruit in autumn. This is a wonderful small tree or large shrub.

Is this really from the Dogwood Group?
I bet it has to be planted in a sunny position, it looks as if it planted against
a wall? It is such a healthy looking Shrub no wonder you named yourself
Greenfinger!

I have 2 Dogwoods Cornus Alba and Spaethi which I like for the coloured
bark. My back garden is North Facing, so I do not get full sun.
I would love to grow this one!!!

It is in an east facing border but I'm in Scotland so we get very little sun and lots of rain. It's a hardy shrub although this one is now a small tree and a great asset to my garden .
