Cornus × elwinortonii ‘Kn30 8’ PBR VENUS ™
This newer dogwood selection will knock your socks off! A profusion of very large, creamy white flowers with a nubbin of green in the center distinguishes this floriferous smaller tree. The flowers, or bracts, may be up to 6 inches (15cm) across and stand out against the lustrous green foliage. In autumn the fruit are small red orbs, somewhat reminiscent of strawberries, and the leaves offer a palette of red, orange, and purple.
