The Elizabeth Lustgarten Weeping Kousa Dogwood (Cornus kousa 'Elizabeth Lustgarten') is definitely a tree that you'll want in your landscape!

This weeping dogwood would look great anywhere you want to plant it! Use it as an accent tree in your garden, plant it in a woodland garden, or just plant it on its own! The possibilities are endless with this weeping tree!

Its long downward growing branches eventually meet the ground and this builds the weeping structure of the tree. The weeping branch structure creates a cascade effect that makes for a fun hideout for the kids and grandkids!

Its thick, dark green foliage makes a good backdrop for its snow-white blossoms. Its edible fruit makes it a bird magnet and in the fall its green foliage turns red, orange, and/or yellow! This tree will spark interest all year round!

The Elizabeth Lustgarten Weeping Kousa Dogwood tree prefers acidic, well drained soil and a shaded area. This allows for optimal growth and ensures that the tree will be healthy and well-structured.

While this dogwood prefers partial shade, it will tolerate partial to full sun. But a thick layer of mulch should be placed at the base year round to keep the soil moist. Deep irrigation is also recommended for full sun environments

There is no way you can go wrong with this elegant weeping dogwood! Get yours today! Everyone will love it, even the kids!
