Cornus kousa var. Chinensis 'Milky Way'
A good substitute for the native dogwood in many urban landscape situations; resistant to the organism that causes dogwood anthracnose
Showy white flowers in late spring; even greater flower and fruit production; star-shaped flowers appear after the foliage and provide almost a 'milky way' effect
All dogwoods produce clusters of green fruit that eventually turn red; birds love the fruit, which resembles raspberries
Upright, vase-shaped when young, but branches start to branch out with age; dark-green foliage turns red in the fall
Resists drought better than other dogwoods
Older bark develops an exfoliating character, revealing a mix of gray-tan and mahogany brown
Doesn't bloom for a couple of years after it's planted
Can grow 20 to 30 feet high
Hardy in USDA zones 5-8.
