Satomi Dogwood (Cornus kousa ‘Satomi)
Flower: Pink, showy
Sun: Full sun to partial shade
Soil tolerance: Best grown in organically rich, medium moisture, acidic to neutral, well-drained soils
No serious insect or disease problems. This plant has better disease resistance and better cold hardiness than flowering dogwood (Cornus florida), and is an excellent alternative to flowering dogwood in areas where dogwood anthracnose is a problem. In full sun locations, leaf scorch may appear, particularly if soils are allowed to dry out. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution.
