Kousa dogwoods (Cornus kousa) are not fast growers at all. The average rate would depend on the planting site, the weather each year and the overall age and health of the plant. I would not expect more than about a foot a year or less at best. On the other hand, the wait is well worth it as this is a lovely tree. I hope this helps.
