Cornus kousa China Girl is a selected form of Cornus kousa var. chinensis and arose around 1978. A very beautiful small garden tree that is renown for its profuse production of flowers, even on very young plants, in spring. They are formed in upturned, white single bracts, flushing pink with age, along the tops of the branches. In autumn the leaves turn to an amazing burgundy red and small inedible strawberry like fruits cling to the branches, which are very attractive to birds. A beautiful spectical in any garden! Ideal for small or large gardens and is often grown in a pot. Prefer a sun to semi shade location in moist, fertile acidic to neutral soil. In a pot use a good quality ericaceous John Innes compost as this plant will be there a long time and peaty types of compost eventually degrade, become too packed and choke the roots. Ensure you feed regularly as a hungry plant is a poor performer. We recommend Osmoscote pro 8-9 month applied in the early spring. One application gives all the nutrients the plant requires for the whole year. John Innes is a soils based compost.
