Two angles of my Cornus Kousa chinensis. I bought it as a metre high bush of about four branches, 25 years ago.
It doesn't seem to grow much in height any more,(about 5m tall and 4m across) but it took about 15 years to get to this size. Apart from cutting off the odd dead branch, I do nothing to it.
It flowers every year, sometimes it has fruit/seedpods on it. It has good autumn colour.
In a smaller garden, and for better colour, I would go for Miss Satomi. I do like the pink flowers instead of the white. I seem to have a lot of white at that time of year.
