How to solve this problem?

All the trees in the park are flowering trees.

So, a flowering tree should satisfy two conditions.

1. It should be a Tree (Some of the trees in the park are dogwoods).
2. It should be in the Park (Some of the trees in the park are dogwoods).

Since, dogwoods satisfy the above conditions, "All dogwoods in the park are flowering trees" - True.

Note: If the dogwoods outside the park, it may or may-not be flowering trees.

1. all the trees in park is flowering tree
so dogwoods is one kind of tree which is planted in the park
you can say like a classification of tree
so, any kind of tree planted in park is flowering tree

If you use the venn diagram, the result is invalid. How come it is true?
