Venus® Dogwood

Venus® Dogwood

Cornus x Venus®

This could be the perfect dogwood you’ve been waiting for! Another selection of the spectacular hybrids from the ‘Rutgan’ series of Dogwood, ‘Venus’ has the beauty of the goddess it was named for. Very hardy, with superb disease resistance, this intoxicating selection is exquisitely round shaped with a low branching habit that will have its flowers nearly touching the ground. And what flowers! They are enormous 5-6″ sized, snow-white bracts surrounding a tiny green center that unfurl in a blinding performance of spring glory in mid-May that will leave you breathless. Once these massive blooms fade, you will get a great look at clean, deep green foliage that will stay beautiful even summer’s heat followed by a brilliant display of color in fall makes this the perfect worry free specimen for any partial shade location.
