Why plant Milky Way Kousa Dogwood?
Captivating Kousa! Our Milky Way Kousa Dogwoods are beautiful flowering trees that will bring many seasons of beauty to your landscape! This broad and bushy tree blossoms a profusion of creamy white flowers in late spring; that's a months worth of seeing a white colored sea in your backyard! Once the flowers have run their course, intricate strawberry-like bright red edible berries eventually take their place. In the fall, the green leaves transform into ruby reds, oranges, and eye-catching golds; giving the maples and oaks a run for their money. Each leaf is intricately made, broad then thinning into an elegant tip. Even the speckled bark is a beautiful sight to see in the winter. A tree like this makes gardening so worth while. If you desire a tree that will completely glamorize your landscape, then the Milky Way Kousa Dogwood is perfect for you.
How to use Milky Way Kousa Dogwood in the landscape?

You can plant one of these behind a shrub garden for a colorful backdrop to compliment the deep green shrubbery.

Hardiness Zone: 4-8
How To Plant Milky Way Kousa Dogwood
When planting your Kousa Dogwood, make sure to choose a planting site that receives full sunlight for at least six hours with slight filtered shade. Dogwoods are very adaptable to many soil types and prefer moist, fertile soils in organic matter. These trees are easy to grow, easy to care for, and deer resistant. Kousa Dogwoods are also resistant to the deadly anthracnose disease that is highly destructive to American Dogwoods and deceitful powdery mildew.
How To Water
Kousa Dogwoods like to be watered once or twice a week. Be careful of overwatering, light green leaves can be a sign of overwatering. Droopy and sad plants can be a sign of both over and under watering. Soil should be watered until moist 2-3 inches down.
How To Fertilize
Incorporate Elements Starter Plant Food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. If planting in the fall, use Elements fertilizer while planting and start your regular annual fertilizing the following fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established as it gives your tree the nutrients it needs to produce lush new growth for the following spring.
How To Prune
Kousa Dogwoods do not require trimming to develop its natural beautiful form.

How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
