Cornus Kousa Weisse Fontaine is a deciduous ornamental Chinese dogwood with pure white flower bracts in June. It’s a beautiful small tree for compact gardens and mixed informal borders.

Cornus Kousa are native to China, Japan and Korea. They are a large genus of creeping shrubs and flowering trees that enjoy a wide range of soils and suit UK gardens.

The cultivar Weisse Fontaine was bred in Holland. Its name means ‘White Fountain’ for its cascade of pure white flower bracts with small green flowerheads. Its stunning white bracts contrast nicely with its pointy green oval foliage that turns pink and gold in autumn.

If its flowerheads are pollinated, small red-pink edible fruitlets appear. These fruits look like small raspberries and are loved by birds if you don’t want them.

This is a beautiful Chinese Dogwood that’s ideal as a small specimen tree in sunny locations.

Chinese Dogwood White Fountain is a compact dogwood that reaches three metres in height and spread over 10-20 years.

How Hardy Is Cornus Kousa Weisse Fontaine

How To Use Cornus Kousa Weisse Fontaine
