Taxonomy and Etymology

Family: Cornaceae, a family of flowering trees, shrubs, and herbs native to northern temperate regions and tropical Asia.

Genus: Cornus, cornus (Latin, noun), meaning 'dogwood', originally referring to Cornus mas. The generic name could also be derived from the Latin noun cornūs (horn, power, strength), in reference to the high strength, density, and hardness of the wood of species in this genus. Commonly known as dogwood, a genus of flowering plants that are native throughout much of temperate and boreal Eurasia and North America, with China, Japan, and the southeastern United States being particularly rich in native species.

Species: Cornus kousa, kousa, unknown meaning, first named by F. Buerger and then confirmed by the British diplomat Henry Fletcher Hance (1827 - 1886). The specific epithet is not the Japanese name for this species as many sources claim. The correct Japanese name for this species is yamaboushi, meaning 'mountain priest', in reference to the mound in the centre of the flower resembling the shaven head of a priest and the four white bracts that resemble the scarf worn by monk-soldiers on the ancient temple Enryaku-ji located on Mount Hiei, Japan.

Cultivar: Cornus kousa 'Satomi'

Common Name: Japanese Dogwood

Other Common Name(s): Chinese Dogwood, Korean Dogwood

The grade size is the size of the bag/pot the tree is in. This is measured in either litres or pints per bag.

The height is the overall height of the tree from the top of the pot/bag (bottom of the trunk) to the top of the tree. Some grades have height ranges as the heights of the individual trees vary.

The standard height is the height of the clear trunk from the bottom of the trunk to the graft or the first branch (if it is not grafted).

Grades that are in production are not yet ready for sale. You can place a pre-order for a 50% deposit and we will hold the stock until it is ready. Enquire if interested.

Prices subject to change without notice. Actual stock quantity may differ. Every care is taken to accurately record heights but due to slightly different growth rates and other natural variables that can occur within and to a species, variety, or cultivar, the actual height of the final product may differ from what is stated.
