The Wolf Eyes Kousa Dogwood is a large shrub or small tree, 8 to 10 feet tall, maturing in time to as much as 20 feet tall and wide, in ideal locations. The leaves have a unique rippled edge, and they are bordered with a bold stripe of creamy-white. The green center has slightly smoky-gray overtones, and the leaves turn stunning shades of pinks, light and dark, in fall. The mottled bark has muted tones of gray, pink and tan, and older plants have attractive spreading and layered branches. Large, pure-white blooms smother the branches all through June, and red, strawberry-like fruits develop by late summer.

  • Green leaves bordered with a bold white stripe
  • Turns beautiful tones of pink in fall
  • Smothered in large white flowers all through June
  • Crop of red, strawberry-like fruits in early fall
  • Grows better in heavier shade than other dogwoods can

Full sun is great for the Wolf Eyes Kousa Dogwood in cooler zones, or afternoon shade in warmer ones. This variety grows better in full shade than others, keeping its white variegation well. Plant it in rich, moist, well-drained soil, preferably acidic or neutral, and avoid dry soils and very alkaline ones. This tree is resistant to the deadly anthracnose disease that troubles the American dogwood, and it is generally free of problems and untouched by deer. Soak well periodically over the summer.
