I have had this from a friend and I haven't seen it flower last season. It may be die to when I prune though. I though cornus but when I looked up pics most had like a leafy flower which I hadn't seen on this? Thanks for helping, any further ideas welcome! @Keely @gardengimp @ferne101 @tiggrx
It looks identical to a cornus I just gave to charity. It had insignificant flower clusters in early spring, so blink and you miss it. I did take a cutting so standby for a photo :) Are the stems green, red or browny-red? Not quite clear on the pic @SylviaDavies
@SylviaDavies I would still give it a light tidy up to maintain the shape. If it's older than 3 years or when the branches look a bit sparse of leaves I'd consider cutting out ONLY one or two of the thickest darkest old branches. Brightly coloured vigorous new stems carrying fresh leaves and flowers will begin growing from where you cut the old branch out. Hope this helps.
