I planted one of these about three years ago and had a couple of the white bracts the first year but nothing since then. It is planted according to requirements on Shoot ( ticks in all boxes). Any one any thoughts on why this might be?

Thanks

Maggie

How do you prune your Cornus Kousa? It only needs deadwood removing and if you prune is too hard this could be a cause.

You do not prune a tree for the first 3-5 years, it needs to develop some scaffolding limbs, only then can you start removing weak growth, criss cross branches etc. I prune mine in Fall. I also notice that mine blooms prolifically every alternate year, its not shabby every alternate year either.
