This is absolutely one of my favorite trees. But don't be fooled by the "will take more sun." Even here in the northwestern mountains of NC, where eighty degrees is a heat wave, we lost our first attempt at this tree from having it in full sun. Our second try is an understory tree and it is WONDERFUL.

Positive Copperbaron On Apr 29, 2003, Copperbaron from Vicksburg, MS (Zone 8a) wrote:

The outstanding attribute of this cultivar is the strong variegation with cream on the outside edges and green in the center of the leaves. Reportedly more tolerant of sun of the variegated varieties, but this cultivar still should be shaded from the afternoon southern sun. Another great kousa dogwood.
