  • Care
    Care Information
    Prefers moist, well drained soil. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Pruning time: winter.
    Light Needs:
    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.
<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or  tree(s).

  • History & Lore
    History:
    This outstanding hybrid, from the Jersey Star Star® Series, was selected by Dr. Elwin Orton at Rutgers University, the result of a cross between the Pacific Dogwood (Cornus nuttallii) and Korean Dogwood (Cornus kousa). This superior selection has shown high resistance to the incidents of Powdery Mildew and Dogwood Anthracnose.
