Flowering Trees

Cornus kousa ‘Milky Way’

The Korean Dogwood,  Cornus kousa ‘Milky Way’, is easily one of our favorite Dogwoods for the Pacific Northwest. This beauty blooms very heavily even when young. The tree becomes covered in bright white, long lasting flowers with pointed bracts. Attractive red fruits form in the summer which the birds just love. The fall color is very showy with warm red to maroon tones. ‘Milky Way’ will grow to about 15-20′ and develop a dense canopy with graceful, horizontally tiered branches. Adding to all these wonderful features is the fact that it has excellent disease resistance in our Western Washington climate. We highly recommend the Milky Way Dogwood for a partly sunny spot in your garden.
