White Fountain

White Fountain is a Chinese flowering dogwood, named for its large creamy-white flower-like bracts. In late spring these weigh down the branches, creating a cascading fountain effect.

The flowers are followed in late summer by small red/pink edible fruitlets, which look a bit like small raspberries, and contain allegedgely-beneficial anthocyanins.

In autumn the leaves turn from green to orange to dull red.

The bark may start to peel attractively as the tree ages.
