Placed as the solitary tree of a small courtyard, the Beni fuji dogwood, or Cornus kousa ‘Beni
fuji’, would be the indisputable centerpiece, or seen through a garden gate it would be a
perfect focal-point. This small cultivar of Chinese dogwood is slower growing than the
species and only reaches 6 feet tall after 10 years making it adaptable to most any garden
though, ultimately, it may reach 15 feet. In youth it is elegantly vase-shaped becoming more
rounded with maturity. It has glossy-green leaves strikingly accented by red veins and
petioles. In autumn these leaves color a magnificent purple and red. But even more beautiful
are the numerous, small, deep red flowers that have been likened to a swarm of butterflies,
and this floral extravagance lasts for weeks in early summer.
The Beni fuji dogwood is a polished, small tree that prefers sun/partial shade in well-drained,
slightly acidic soil, and is hardy to -20 degrees Fahrenheit.
