“Cornus kousa China Girl is an attractive, early flowering form of Dogwood introduced from Holland in the late 1970s. The foliage of this small garden tree is dark green in summer, turning to reds and oranges in winter time. In the summer the leaves often take up a slightly curled up appearance, which is completely normal for this species. The Chinese Dogwoods are renowned for their beautiful and abundant bract like flowers which are produced in early spring, followed by bright red strawberry like fruits that continue to add interest to this specimen throughout the summer months and into autumn.”
