Cornus kousa 'Milky Way'

Milky Way Kousa Dogwood

An improved selection with a vigorous growth habit, nice shape, and huge flower displays every year. Pure white flowers cover each and every branch each May. Selected by Wayside Gardens for excellent habit and flower displays. Deep green, disease resistant foliage turns scarlet red in fall. Heavy crop of bright red fruits are beloved by wildlife.

Fruit production can be so huge on this cultivar that it can way the branches down to the point of ruining the shape of the trees. Thinning the annual crop of heavy fruits will help to avoid this.
