Hong Kong dogwood, Cornus hongkongensis, is a deciduous tree native to China, Laos and Vietnam. It has a dense, upright habit. Its fresh green leaves have yellow margins, and turn beautiful shades of red and purple in autumn. Its large, white bracts are typical of cornus, and fade to a light pink with age. These are followed by small green fruit.
