Chinese Dogwood. This lovely slow growing smaller tree is spectacular when laden with masses of large-bracted flowers, appearing in June-July. In the fall, there are attractive strawberry-like fruits that attract birds to your garden. The autumn color is a showy burgundy, with the fruits ripening at different stages in colors of green, yellow, orange, and red. Differs from Cornus kousa, the Japanese Dogwood, in that it is more upright with longer internodes and larger leaves and flowers. These characteristics make it surperior as an ornamental tree.
