Product Description

When it comes to flowering dogwood trees that provide exceptional foliage interest, even when not in bloom, look no further than this newer variety of Chinese Dogwood. In early spring the plant's 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--the summer gold dogwood is truly a multi-season performer. When we first encountered this summer gold dogwood 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

Additional Product Info

How much sun do Summer Gold Flowering Dogwood trees need?

Summer Gold Dogwood trees need full sun or partial shade. These trees tend to do best when provided plenty of sunlight in the morning hours, and a bit of a respite from the sun in the afternoon. Summer Gold can also benefit from filtered sun in the afternoon, sun as a location near a taller tree or pergola.

What type of soil is best for Summer Gold Flowering Dogwood trees?

The Summer Gold Flowering Dogwood prefers fertile, humus-rich soil that falls neutral to acidic. For most coastal and Eastern gardeners, that means that this dogwood should thrive in an area of the landscape that drains well and receives adequate sunlight. However, Summer Gold Flowering Dogwood likely won't thrive in clay, chalky, or sand-heavy soils. Those materials may be too alkaline, and not rich enough, for this tree. Make sure to plant your dogwood in an area with deep soil, so avoid rocky locations while planting this tree.

How often should you water your Summer Gold Flowering Dogwood tree?

Your Summer Gold Flowering Dogwood will need watering regularly as it becomes established in its new location. Water weekly, making sure to maintain a consistent level of moisture, or utilize an irrigation system or soaker hose to water your new tree. Summer Gold Flowering Dogwood can be successfully planted in containers if provided with adequate water, too. Just remember that container trees are more susceptible to becoming dried out. So, check your containers multiple times per week, and water as needed.

Are Summer Gold Flowering Dogwood deciduous?

Summer Gold Flowering Dogwood are deciduous trees, as are all dogwood trees. This tree is notable for its beautiful fall display-its leaves really go out with a bang. In fall, the leaves turn a vivid red that's sure to delight. Mix that color with the golden edge and pink variations of the blooms, and this is a dogwood with truly multi-colored foliage. You'll admire this tree in winter, too, with its dark, attractive bark.

Do Summer Gold Flowering Dogwood attract pollinators?

Dogwoods are excellent trees for attracting bees, birds, and butterflies. Thanks to the floriferous nature of this tree, you'll see several species of bees visiting in the summer and lighting from bloom to bloom. The berries are a great food source for visiting birds, too.
