Our Japanese Kousa Dogwood Living Tree Chairs are forged one-by-one by skilled nurserymen and women using age-old tree-shaping techniques passed down through generations. Over a period of several years, workers train each tree to take the desired form. While the methods used to create the trees aren’t complex, the result is a product that we feel is revolutionary—one which allows you to interact with trees in a radically new, exciting way. No one else is doing this on a scale like Bower & Branch, and certainly no one is using Japanese Kousa Dogwood to do it. Kousa Dogwood, an Asian native grown in the West since the 1850s, has always been a purely ornamental tree. Now it has beauty and function!
When the word “Dogwood” is uttered, “anthracnose” usually isn’t too far behind. Anthracnose is a fungal disease that can be deadly to some Dogwood Trees, particularly the American native Flowering Dogwood. Luckily, the Japanese Kousa Dogwood is virtually immune to anthracnose. This tree has showy white flowers and blooms a bit later than the Flowering Dogwood.
How to Grow
Your Japanese Kousa Dogwood Living Tree Chair will thrive in full sun to part shade. It requiresmoist but well-drained soil. This special tree will be professionally planted by a trained Living Tree Chair technician from your local Bower & Branch™ member Garden Center. Purchase of the tree will also include six visits from a technician to ensure that your tree is properly installed and established in your landscape, so that you may enjoy it for years to come. Upon planting, the Japanese Kousa Dogwood Living Tree Chair will be able to hold at least 250 pounds, and after one year in your landscape, there are no weight restrictions. We recommend purchasing a Bower & Branch™ Tree Chair Saddle to make your Living Tree Chair experience fully satisfying.
