Another extraordinary Japanese flowering dogwood is called Teutonia and comes from Asia.

Unlike cornus florida this type flowers when in leaf – in June. The flowers are tiny but surrounded by 4 large, creamy-white bracts, which can be 6-8 cm wide. Leaves are deep green, often with noticeable veins, deciduous.

Flowers are followed by fleshy, edible, spherical fruit that looks like small litchi, has pink-red colour and delicious taste! The fruit ripens in August.

Usual height in our climate is 2-3 meters as it spreads to sides rather than height. It forms horizontal branches, which make this small tree an ideal specimen growing on its own.

It prefers acidic, moist soil and withstands windy areas. Fully hardy to -29°C (USDA zone 5).
