Gardeners tend to use -

the binomial name, I think. But it's sometimes also called Chinese-, Korean-, or Japanese Dogwood.

Strawberry Dogwood

This plant is often called Strawberry Dogwood. There is another species bearing very similar fruit, namely C. capitata which is evergreen unlike C. kousa.

Thank you both!

Thank you both for your comments!
I'm just wondering now.....is it Chinese, Korean, Japanese, or Strawberry Dogwood?!

I shall do some more research and look up each name on google to see which it seems likely to be.

Of course, it could be all of these names!
