Rarely available; selected as a branch sport on 'Satomi'. It has white-variegated foliage similar to 'Wolf Eyes', but the flower bracts and foliage are irregularly specked with pink. With irrigation it is not as susceptible to sunburn in Oregon, but reports from TN growers suggest that it may do best there in partial shade or on a north facing slope to protect it from the worst of late afternoon summer heat.
Cornus kousa 'Summer Fun' (Summer Fun Chinese Dogwood)
Introduced by Talon Buchholz, this brilliant, white-margin variegated clone seems perfectly sun tolerant and puts on a show to rival any of the daunting number of other white-variegated kousas. It is the most vigorous variegated clone we have grown.
Originally a branch sport, this dogwood is strongly white variegated. It's fine in the sun, but should be used to brighten a shady spot in the landscape. 'Wolf Eyes' is a compact plant and has excellent pink and red fall color.
