Kuosa 053116

Kousa Dogwood - a pretty specimen tree.
 The Latin root, spec- means "to look at." Consequently, a specimen plant is one you would single out in your landscape as being particularly worth looking at and thereby deserving of "center stage" in your yard.


This one in our yard doesn't stand alone but does stand out against the arborvitae.

  2. Pretty tree- I have failed more times than I want to admit to grow one in my yard. Once I had a fair amount of luck with a wild one I transplanted...but it died in it's second year. SIGH.
