The Blue Ray™ Kousa Dogwood is a unique variety, with a wonderful display of ivory-white blooms coming a month after the native flowering dogwood. These are followed by large red fruits that extend the season of interest. The leaves are unusually large, with a rich blue-green color, and glossy, making this an especially attractive plant even when not in bloom. Rich red and orange fall colors round out the year. Grow it as a lawn specimen that will reach 20 feet tall and wide. It’s ideal for semi-shaded locations, at the back of shrub beds, or along the margins of a wooded area.

  • Beautiful white blossoms in May
  • Attractive strawberry-like summer fruits
  • Unique large, glossy leaves are blue-green
  • Much more disease resistant than the native dogwood
  • Valuable flowering tree for semi-shaded areas

Partial shade is ideal for the Blue Ray™ Kousa Dogwood, which will grow in full sun in cooler zones and damp soil. It thrives in well-drained soils, preferring rich, slightly acidic ones. Much more resistant to disease than our native trees, it’s relatively easy to grow with minimal care and attention. No pruning is required beyond removing any dead branches.
