Kousa Dogwood in full all day hot sun
When I decided to plant my now three year old Kousa I was told that it would be fine in the full all day hot sun. My Kousa ended up having root girdling and I got my money back but had decided to stick with the tree after having to operate on the root that was restricting the trunk. Loosing a major root was traumatic and might be the reason it got leaf scorch by Aug. 1 two summers in a row. This year it's off to a good start, leafing out nicely like the two previous years, but I'm watering it with a tree bag and will make double sure it doesn't dry out this summer and will hope for it's first year without the leaf scorch half way through summer. It also has hardly bloomed this year after two years of excellent blooms. That all said. Does anyone have feed back on how their Kousa does in full all day sun?
