Got Cornus florida instead of Kousa; now what?
I grabbed what was labelled C. kousa at the box store (yeah, yeah, my bad) and stuck it in the ground, only to take a good look at it and find out that it's not a kousa, it's a C. florida. I've planted only kousas and hybrids for disease resistance. If I took the tree back to the box store, I'd have to 1) dig it back up, and 2) deal with someone saying "well the TAG says it's a kousa. That's what it is. What's your problem?"
So how bad is the disease problem for C. florida? Is anthracnose pretty much guaranteed? I'm trying to decide whether to sit back and wait and give it a shot, or let the darn thing die and then return it under the 1-year guarantee. (They're going to throw it out anyway, and it's easier to convince them that it's dead than that it's the wrong tree.)
