Award-winning Cornus kousa 'Miss Satomi' (Kousa Dogwood) is an upright, spreading medium-sized deciduous shrub with 4 seasons of interest. In spring, a heavenly array of star-like blooms appear. They consist of four narrowly pointed deep pink bracts which surround the center cluster of tiny yellowish-green flowers. The blossoms give way to strawberry-like, rosy-pink fruits in summer, which persist into fall, unless devoured by hungry birds. In summer, its canopy of layered branches, clad with oval, pointed, dark green leaves, provides shade and beauty. In the fall, it offers spectacular bright red color when its foliage turns attractive shades of scarlet. In winter, its exfoliating, mottled, tan and gray bark adds interest to the landscape.
