Late Autumn Color

Cornus kousa 007We planted a pair of tiny kousa dogwoods about 2 or 3 years ago. They flank the entrance to our vegetable garden. Although they are different varieties of kousa dogwood, both are variegated. One is a ‘wolf eyes’ variety. I forget what the other one is. At any rate, I’ve been delighted by the show they’ve put on this autumn: the white parts on the leaves on both have turned quite pink the past few weeks, making them look rather like tricolor beech leaves do in spring. Lovely!
