Three Seasons of Beauty: The Venus® Dogwood

  • Large White Blooms
  • Beautiful Foliage Through Three Months
  • Grows Quickly
  • Tolerates Drought Well
  • Produces Raspberry-like Fruit That Birds Love
  • Disease Resistant

The Venus Dogwood (Cornus x 'KN30-8') has many of the best traits gardeners adore. And guess what it got it from its momma (and poppa), the Cornus kousa x Cornus nuttallii hybrid and Cornus kousa. It is a small ornamental that offers three seasons' worth of beauty.

The first thing you will notice about the Venus Dogwood is the way it blooms. You will get a profusion of massive white blossoms in late spring--from a distance, The Venus will almost look like the branches are covered with snow. These fluffy white blooms will attract bees and butterflies from near and far, as well as many varieties of birds.

In addition to the blossoms, the Venus Dogwood produces a small berry that could be mistaken for a raspberry. While you can eat them, you will want to save them for hungry birds. You will enjoy the pinkish-red color of the fruit, and your feathered friends will thank you for the treatment that you provided for them.

Your Venus Dogwood will grow into a nice rounded canopied tree, with deep green foliage in the spring and summer, and brilliant ruby-red leaves in the fall. You can use yours as a privacy screen or set it apart from your other trees and use it as a focal point. It winters better than most varieties, and it is highly resistant to diseases that plague other dogwoods.

When it is time to plant your Venus Dogwood, you need to find a spot with full sun to partial shade, along with rich, slightly acidic, soils that are well-drained. If your soil isn't rich, you can add composted material and mulch.

Start planning where you want to put this show-stopping dogwood because the stock of Venus Dogwoods will not last forever. Put some in your cart today, and soon you will be enjoying the beautiful show of colors and the birds of your area will be dining on the delicious berries.
