Cornus alternifolia - Pagoda Dogwood

A remarkable little-known tree native to eastern North America, Pagoda Dogwood was named in allusion to its layered growth habit which suggests the tiers of a pagoda. One of the first trees to leaf out in spring, this dogwood blooms in May with fragrant yellow-white flowers borne in flat-topped clusters. The nearly black fruits develop quickly and are taken by birds in late summer. In fall the foliage turns red and purple, and in winter the dramatic layered branching and horizontal habit of this small tree stand out in the landscape. Prefers moist soil and benefits from afternoon shade in hot-summer areas. Z. 4-7

Cornus alternifolia Golden Shadows - Variegated Pagoda Dogwood

A new selection with creamy golden foliage in summer, Golden Shadows appears to be more sun tolerant than the old C. alternifolia 'Argentea', but it's still a good idea to protect it from full, blazing sun. To end the year, fall foliage colors up yellow and red. A superb introduction for dappled light or a lightly shaded woodland! Grows slowly to 10-12 feet. PP 11287. Z. 4-7

Cornus kousa 'Akatsuki - 'Red Moon' Kousa Dogwood

Cornus kousa is the Asian counterpart of our Flowering Dogwood, and it shares similar large flowers, but C. kousa blooms several weeks later, after the leaves have expanded. It also branches as a vase rather than horizontally. Cold hardy and disease resistant, it's a fine choice for extending the Dogwood season. 'Akatsuki' is a wonderful new selection from Japan. Flowers open white with large red areas, a stunning bicolor effect. Not to be outmatched by the flowers, leaves are green with flashy white variegation. Fall foliage color is rich purple. C. kousa grows well in full sun or considerable shade in moist but well-drained soil. This slower growing selection reaches only 8' tall in 10 years, greater with age. Z. 5-8

Cornus Venus(R) (cv.'KN-30-8') - Hybrid Dogwood

A few years ago, Dr. Elwin Orton, renowned plant breeder at Rutgers University here in New Jersey, gave us a phone call. He wanted to tell us about his latest creation, Cornus Venus which had the largest flowers he had ever seen on a Dogwood—as much as 8 inches across: dinner-plate flowers indeed! These white flowers are borne prolifically all over the tree, with the largest ones appearing on the outside in full sun and smaller ones in the interior. After 20 years Venus has reached 16 feet tall with greater spread, and the heavily textured leaves are a glossy dark green and have shown complete resistance to all common Dogwood pests. Little wonder that the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society recently awarded Venus their Gold Medal Plant Award. Reserve a prime spot in your garden for C. Venus, one of the best Dogwoods available today! PP 16309. Z. 6-9.
