GIRARD'S DWARF CHINESE DOGWOOD

Habit

This is the first of a number of interesting dwarf forms we will be offering in the years to come. As one would expect it has a somewhat more densely arranged structure with shorter branches and a sturdy trunk. However, for the most part it has the typical Chinese dogwood look but grows 1/4 to 1/3 the size. An anomaly which can be used in a number of settings closer to structures and in restricted spaces such as courtyards and rock gardens where dogwoods are not normally considered.

Flower
White 4 inch wide bloom with overlapping bracts in May-June. An abundant bloomer putting on a good amount of flowers even as a young tree.

Foliage
Typical kousa chinensis leaves, plants is dwarf but the leaf size is standard, up to 4 inches long and 2 inches wide. the color is a solid dark green giving way to a dark red to red-purple in the fall.

Fruit
Large pinkish red drupe effective from late August to early October, very showy.

Ht./Sp.
8 to 12 Feet / 8 to 10 Feet - Note - This is an estimate for a mature plant, early evaluations on 5 year old plants were only 3 to 4 ft.

Zone
5 to 8

Note
We would like to acknowledge the late Pete Girard of Girard's Nursery for his help on this plant, just one of a number of noteworthy introductions to the trade that will carry his name.
