The noticeable shiny green leaves of this evergreen will have you polishing in the garden throughout the winter. Come early spring you will find a delight of double flowered colour, of cream with a raspberry edge and a burst of central yellow.

Acid, moist but well-drained
The Cornus kousa is native to Japan, China and Korea and here at Reuthe's we have our very own orchard, for you to see on request. Flowering in late spring with a delicate white flower and in the autumn it produces a delicious fig like fruit which can be turned into a relish. A perfect addition for those who enjoy home grown produce.
Fertile, neutral to acid

For the wild child in your life! At our woodland parties, children will join our Forest School leader to learn about working with Elder, den building, fire building, cooking popcorn on an open fire, leaf crown making and whittling.
Explore the Lost Gardens with one of our trusty alpaca guides! Our adorable alpacas love to lead parties, showing off their favourite snacking spots as they weave their way through the wild rhododendron forest.
