Heart Throb Pink Kousa Dogwood (Cornus kousa "Heart Throb" "Schmred")
This is a pink Heart Throb® Kousa Dogwood (Cornus kousa "Heart Throb" "Schmred") I photographed at work. They are a great tree. I have been following a thread on the UBC forums on pink Kousa. It seems things are a little confused about the origin of the pink cultivars. I have found this tree to be of stout habit and exceptional beauty. My growing experience with this tree and 'Miss Satomi' have been very easy and rewarding. The longer the tree has been planted, the more pink it becomes. It also needs a good bit of sun to have the most flowers.
