    Product Description

    Finally, you can fit in one of the most stunning ornamental trees even if your garden has little available real-estate. In an absolutely perfect setting, this true dwarf has reached up to 10' tall, but it'll more likely grow to around 8' tall. You can even keep this as a potted patio plant in zones 7-8, though you'll need to bring it into a garage for winter in zone 6. It's an overachiever when it comes to beauty, too. It'll deliver generous amounts of larger-than-average flowers. As a kousa dogwood, it blooms a little later in the season than any native varieties you have, followed by unusual, spiky red-orange fruits. It's a good fall feature, too, as the leaves change to red and scarlet. Here's a cool bonus, you can actually eat fruit from a kousa dogwood. Be sure to wait until the skin is fully red and the flesh is a pumpkin color, otherwise its taste is astringent. When ripe, it is sweet and delightful. Cornus kousa 'Little Poncho'
