Cornus kousa 'White Fountain'


Description: Cornus 'White Fontaine', also known as Weisse Fontaine, produces masses of pure white flowers in June against green foliage, creating a cascading fountain effect. The flowers are followed in late summer by small red/pink edible fruitlets, which look a bit like small raspberries. The pointy, oval shaped foliage turns a rich, brick red with tones of pink and gold in the autumn.

Cornus Growing Tips: Thrives in fertile, humus-rich, neutral to acid soil. Unsuitable for shallow, chalky soils.

Height and Spread (after 10 years): 3m x 3m
