Cornus kousa ‘Heart Throb’
Out of stock
Kousa Dogwoods flower 2-3 weeks later than native varieties, with more cold-hardy buds and strong horizontal branching. Heart Throb’s large 4″ wide pink bracts persist for up to 6 weeks. Reddish raspberry-like fruits adorn the tree from August through October. Scarlet fall color is late and long-lasting. Rich soil is preferred, so amend lean soils with compost. More drought and disease resistant than flowering varieties.
