Product information "Chinese Dogwood 'China Girl'"

The Chinese dogwood is a very valuable deciduous shrub or small tree for solitary plantings. With its wide, sweeping growth, a height of up to 5 metres and a width of 3 m, it should earn a place of honour in gardens.
From June to July there are numerous, yellowish white “flowers”, which are actually bracts. They have a diameter of up to 10.5 cm. Cornus kousa var. chinensis  ‘China Girl’ has a richer bloom than its “relatives”. The strawberry-like, pinkish red fruits appear in autumn.
 The plant’s most impressive feature is the spectacular, yellow to bright red colouration of the foliage in autumn. China Girl thrives in normal garden soil; however it performs best in very good to slightly acidic, rather dry soils. Plant it in full sun and mulch the roots well.

Not any foliage (Janet drew)

I planted my chin a girl last spring and had a lovely show of leaves and cracks I am still waiting for them to appear this spring i have scraped the stems and they seem to be alive so I am wondering if it is a late performing plant
