Meet a dogwood that blends disease resistance with small stature (no pruning required!). Venus dogwood is the result of a cross between Pacific dogwood (Cornus nuttallii) and Korean dogwood (Cornus kousa). The resulting beauty features 6-inch-wide spring flowers, red berry-like fruits in autumn and red fall color. Birds flock to this dogwood to gobble the fruit, making it a must-have in a wildlife or bird garden. Size: Up to 15 to 20 feet tall and wide. Hardy in Zones 5-9.
Venus Dogwood is the result of a cross between Pacific Dogwood (Cornus nuttallii) and Korean Dogwood (Cornus kousa). Its flowers are up to 6 inches across—as big as a hand. Like other dogwoods, this cross shows strong resistance to Japanese beetle feeding. Leaves have a strong venation pattern that creates an almost quilted effect, which could be why the beetles give it a pass.
A blend of ivory, neutral and soft metallics create a polished sitting area. A plush cream sofa, tufted ottoman and gold armchair provide a variety of textures while still giving a harmonious blend of luxurious fabrics. A gold hutch paired with two ornate urns brings a touch of exotic charm to this space.
