Cornus kousa chinensis – Biblical Series™ of Chinese & Kousa Dogwoods
THESE DOGWOODS SOAR IN POPULARITY
After over 30 years of research and development comes the Biblical Series™ of Chinese Dogwoods. Each tree in the series were derived from the original ‘Milky Way’ dogwood made famous by Wayside Gardens.
These new cultivars offer today’s gardener advanced disease resistance, significantly larger flowers and fruit, extra vigorous growth habits and exceptional winter hardiness.
Most notably, they all came through the 1977-78 blizzards and the 1993 sub-zero temperatures in Northeast Ohio with flying colors, showing no visible tip dieback or winter burn. Their hardiness along with their disease resistance makes them an obvious choice to replace the native dogwoods which have been greatly reduced in number by anthracnose disease.
The Biblical Series™ includes:
Galilean® - Its’ hunter green leaves are enormous in comparison to the species being over twice the size. Its’ abundant flowers are bright white, star-shaped bracts that are colossal in size on a distinct horizontal branching structure.
Prophet™ – Similar to the species but with superior star-shaped, creamy white flowers borne in heavy clusters in June. We have observed generous amounts of both flower and fruit at the same time in late summer. Rich mahogany-red fall foliage gives way to reveal a showy exfoliating bark for winter interest.
Samaritan® - The most vigorous growing variegated dogwood on the market. It has handsome creamy-white and green variegated foliage with no summer leaf scorching. The foliage is showcased in the fall with radiant pink and burgundy hues. It produces prolific brilliant white flowers late spring and early summer.
The Biblical Series™ is hardy in U.S.D.A. Zone 4 and is the perfect combination of outstanding beauty and performance.
