Miss Satomi ® is beautiful as a specimen tree, lawn tree, or in mixed plantings.
The Satomi Dogwood, Cornus kousa 'Satomi', produces deep pink flowers that covers the horizontal spreading branches in April to May.
This Japanese selection will make an elegant specimen tree.
It is very hardy and flowers later than other dogwoods. You will most assuredly note its spectacular not-at-all white color, which is more like popsicle pink. This kousa blooms not only in a different color, but at a different time; about a month after every other dogwood is through.
Being very hardy and disease resistant, Satomi Dogwood prefers full sun
to light shade with a well-drained, somewhat acidic soil. Satomi will produce pink-red fruits that appear in autumn.
A truly beautiful specimen tree for the home landscape, with large, showy deep pink flowers in spring and a strongly horizontal habit of growth; prefers rich, well-drained acidic soil and adequate precipitation.
Miss Satomi is one of the hardest pink kousa varities.
