Cornus-kousa-Summer-Gold

Summer Gold Dogwood

Cornus kousa ‘Summer Gold’ is a small upright tree growing erect when young and becoming broader as it matures. In spring, the foliage is soft yellow, brightening up to yellow-gold. Later new growth is darker yellow-orange, standing out against the yellow-gold of the mature leaves. Autumn color is orange-red and winter exposes its red twigs. ‘Summer Gold’ is known as the most resistant of the yellow leafed cultivars to direct sunlight and heat.
