Cornus Kousa by My aunties house worth a show

She called it the handkerchief tree but I have never heard it called that has anyone else? I have heard of the handkerchief tree but I know it is different to this

It's pretty but I have always understood a handkerchief tree as having big while flowers like handkerchiefs.

Me too Hywel, and is a 'proper' tree more so than a shrub, also they take up to 20 years to flower don't they I believe, I guess that is how common names come about, just googled handkerchief tree and the cornus kousa did come up as did Davidia involucrata :-)

Beautiful whatever its name is! A few trees make such a difference to a street - it will cheer up everyone who passes it!.
