Picture a tree with its branches covered with first snowfall. That is what your Snow Tower Kousa Dogwood (Cornus kousa 'Snow Tower') will look like in late spring. Add beautiful foliage in the summer and fall, and shaggy, textured bark in the winter, and you get a Dogwood tree you can enjoy all year long.
The Snow Tower Kousa Dogwood blooms a little later in the spring than most varieties, extending the Dogwood blooming season. You'll be amazed at the bountiful blooms that are white, can be up to inches across and completely covering your tree.
You will also be astounded at the number of butterflies and other pollinators that come to visit this beautiful tree. And it won't be just a few days of flowers. Your tree will hold its blooms for up to a month.
While not grown for its fruit, the Snow Tower Kousa Dogwood comes with the added benefit of edible fruit. Some people make jam or wine from the small, raspberry-like fruit. But beware, many species of birds find them delectable as well, and you might have to share them with your feathered friends.
The Snow Tower Kousa Dogwood will grow into a small tree, tight and upright in nature. Its foliage is dark green in the summer, turning to a reddish-purple in the fall. The defoliating bark is visible in the winter after the leaves fall creating additional visual interest.
You can use this variety for a focal point in your yard or as a screen or hedge. It is winter hardy and disease resistant as well.
You will want to find a spot that has full sun to partial shade for your Snow Tower Kousa Dogwood. Remember that it likes rich, slightly acidic soil. Water it regularly, but do not overwater.
To improve your soil, it is a great idea to maintain a 3-4" layer of arborist's wood chips over the roots of your plants.
Buy your Snow Tower Kousa Dogwood today, before the cupboard is bare. Enjoy the blooms and foliage, and don't forget your binoculars so you can see what birds come to enjoy the fruit.
