Product Description

For a flowering tree that provides exceptional foliage interest, even when it's not in bloom, look no further than this newer variety of Chinese Dogwood. In early spring its leaves display a golden edge, and by mid-summer stripes and swatches of pink give the foliage a water-colored appearance. In mid to late spring, June in our garden, expect creamy-white flowers with incredible staying power and in fall, leaves turn a vivid red—it's truly a multi-season performer. When we first encountered this tree in Oregon in late summer, we counted four different colors on one leaf, and were smitten. Summer Gold is a very compact grower, reaching only 8-10' at maturity with a width of 4-6' making it the perfect focal point at an entrance or in a nearby border. Cornus kousa 'Summer Gold' PPAF
