Hi everyone, can anyone tell me anything about cornus kousa( triple crown), e.g where can I get one,how long it takes to grow before flowers and fruit appear, are the fruit edible.and any thing else about it. cheers, masie



C. kousa 'Triple Crown' is a bit fussy about conditions, preferring a neutral to acid soil which does not dry out. That does not mean it can stand in waterlogged conditions. It reaches about 5m tall and wide max, so quite compact. Fruits are edible but not really worth the effort! C. kousa and many of its cultivars are easy to find, but 'Triple Crown' seems a difficult one to find.
