Dogwoods are a beautiful deciduous species that we sometimes see in bonsai. The Kousa dogwood is a great species that is more disease-resistant than other members of the Cornus genus. After several years, they develop a beautiful exfoliating bark that adds interest to the silhouette. Grown from seed at Kaede Bonsai-en, these trees are well established in 2 1/4" containers.
