Empress of China is a wonderful evergreen variety that can easily withstand the heat and humidity of the Deep South and still produce an impressive amount of blooms throughout the growing season. It exhibits amazing garden performance in the North, too (with some protection), thriving in the Mid-Atlantic to Zone 6b. In late spring, the entire tree is covered in creamy white flowers—up to 150 per branch—that magically transform into vibrant, strawberry-like fruits that attract songbirds. As the name suggests, the glossy, bright green leaves keep their vivid color throughout the year in the South. Semi-evergreen in cooler climates, the foliage takes on a purplish tinge in the cold winter months. In either climate, it sets a partly shaded site alight with color and texture. Selected by our friend, noted plantsman John Elsley. Cornus angustata 'Elsbry' PP14537
