Kousa Dogwood Tree
I planted all the bushes and trees I ordered immediately. This plant is bouncing back nicely from being shipped. When I received it all the leaves were yellow and they all fell off but after I planted it and put it in filtered sun, it bounced right back.
Trees arrived well packaged with moist shredded paper inside plastic sleeve. Trees wee as advertised and already leafed out.
The trees arrived in a dormant bare root condition that appears to be good. They are planted and we’ll see soon.
I have aaKousa planted by my front window. It is so beautiful! It has been there 25 years.
I have a large raised bed where a already planted 25 white dogwood bare root trees to let them "wake up" before transplanting them to their permanent homes.
I had space reserved for these , and was able to plant them the morning after they arrived. I am impressed with the careful packaging. and the dense root network. There are a few new leaves appearing.
My established dogwoods are just starting to develop leaf buds, so I conclude this was a good time to receive the order. I live north of Boston.
