Anyone good with Dogwoods? What's this one?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Can anyone help with a dogwood ident? My Collins only has 5 listed and none of them seem to have green bracts like this! Photos taken a week ago. Sorry I didn't get a pic of the bark or overall shape.

 

Thank youPXL_20210511_084351060.thumb.jpg.903b030dec661845948c5bfdd00377a6.jpgPXL_20210511_084315957.thumb.jpg.56ead080c96e20f888e2540824874900.jpg

Cornus kousa has gained more popularity over recent years, particularly because of its resistance to dogwood anthracnose.  The kousa dogwood tends to have leaves that are a bit smaller than the leaves of the florida;  also, the blossoms appear a little bit later in the spring and are somewhat smaller, with the white petals having a slightly greenish appearance.  The kousa dogwood is somewhat more drought tolerant than the florida.

      Had some woodchips delivered. Lovely quality and for free. Was able to start my garden project. Am so pleased with the service that i have decided to give a tip for my next tip waste load.

      Excellent result last year. I was contacted by some tree surgeons through the site after about 6 months. They were thoughtful and helpfully left me with several piles of clean woodchip, which now helps suppress weeds under my trees. Great site. Thanks

      Extremely helpful and friendly main contact and the allotment was very easy to tip at. Much appreciated!

      Answered phone, dropped off within 10 mins. Access ok for transit but no bigger. 3.5m3 load. Spot on, saved me a trip to the yard.

      Brilliant! Had two loads delivered, spot on time, great bloke, would not even take a few Bob to cover his time and fuel, over the moon. I just have to cut and split 6 tonnes of logs now. I will have to buy the wife a new splitting axe for Christmas. 😁
