The berries on dogwoods aren't always noticeable. The size and colours of them can vary from pea size to grape size, and some of them don't get red, some go from green to yellow. There's 4 young dogwoods on our grounds (2 white and 2 red) and the berries on all 4 of them are no bigger than small peas. They're so small they aren't significant at all until they change from green to red in the summer and even then one needs to look closely for them. They aren't big trees yet though. Maybe when they're more mature and bigger the flowers and then the berries will be bigger too.

yes, there are a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors for the fruits of the various dogwood species. some actually look (but sadly don't taste) rather like small strawberries and the evergreen cornus capitata is some times known as the "Himalayan strawberry tree" and in a good year the tree can be loaded down with it's "strawberries" which at least LOOK luscious and attractive !!!
