Quick Overview:

Greensleeves’ foliage is unusually shiny, waxy, and weathers well through our long growing season. Flowers are prolific, showy in early summer, warmer, creamier than the typical kousa. Fruit are large, salmon colored, attractive against the green foliage, and are reportedly desired by wildlife, dogs and extra hungry humans. Good red and purple-red fall color reported. This vase shaped flowering tree should mature into a 4 season asset, when the bark develops the kousa coloration.

Description

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Prefers moist, organically rich, acidic soils in part shade. Benefits from a 2-4″ mulch which will help keep roots cool and moist in summer.
