When Cornus 'Venus'™ comes to flowering around May 20th, its glossy green leaves will fully be developed. But one does not really see them since they are covered by the mass of creamy white flowers.
In October / November there are strawberry like fruit and wonderful coloring of its leaves.
The hardiness of 'Venus' is perfect. It will resist very cold weather.
Choose the right time for pruning. Never prune 'Venus' at the end of the winter, as one does with many other shrubs, by doing so you would cut of your flowers before they have a chance to open.
When 'Venus' has just begun to flower don't hesitate to cut a branch of and put it in a vase. You will be very surprised how well and how long it keeps fresh.
Grows to a height of 3-4 m. Can be pruned to keep it smaller.
