Very easy.
We used to grow several beautiful Cornus.

Including Cornus kousa,.. Cornus capitata..., Cornus nutali..., Cornus ascona,..Cornus Eddies White Wonder,...Cornus florida Cherokee Chief,..Cornus Cherokee Princess,..Cornus Miss Satomi,.etc etc

Several also have the bonus of big strawberry like edible fruit.

Thanks again Silver Surfer! I use to see them in France when I lived there and they called them Strawberry Trees because of the fruits. Didn't realise the flowers were that pretty!

I apologise! I just realised it is Cornus Kousa and it is not the plants I saw in the south of France... it was bugging me that they just looked rather different. It turns out that what they called Strawberry Trees are Arbutus Unedo. Not even close to Cornus Kousa!!! Embarassed
