(2 Gallon Bare-Root) KOUSA DOGWOOD Tree - a deciduous tree with beautiful white blooms that appear in Spring and a leaf system that creates a showy white appearance throughout the summer. It is sometimes called the Chinese, Korean, or Japanese dogwood. 1-inch, round red sweet and juicy berries that are used for wine making or eating begin to appear in the summer but are harvested in the Fall. The leaves will transform from green to a vibrant red/burgundy in fall. This tree has great disease tolerance and a natural pyramidal shape. What is bare-root shipping? When the plant is shipped with the roots taken out of the pot/ground, and the roots are then wrapped in moist paper, with or without soil. The roots wrapped in moist medium is then covered with some kind of plastic to hold the moisture. The paper with moisture will keep the plant alive, during the journey. The biggest advantage of this method is the cost of shipping is very much reduced- also a very, very safe method in winter months. The plants, once received, roots should be given a soak immediately for 30 minutes and planted immediately. ANY DAMAGE/DISLIKE/DISPUTE SHOULD BE NOTIFIED WITHIN 24 hrs for returns, for bareroot THIS IS THE SAFEST METHOD TO SHIP DURING THE WINTER MONTHS (when the plants are dormant) Most plants go dormant in Fall and Winter and will lose most of their leaves. Looking dead and dry is VERY NORMAL. They will flush out in Spring.
