Dogwood Cornelian Cherry fruit in bowl

Cornelian Cherry Dogwood

Cornus mas

Cornelian Cherry has similar leaves and the same red fall color as the popular dogwood. It is a large, round bush up to 20' tall. Fruit is about 3/4" x 1/2" and plentiful on the tree, ripening in August. A few days after picking, fruits become soft and have a great, fresh taste, reminiscent of canned cranberry sauce. The yellow blossoms on naked gray branches rival witch hazel in beauty. Blooming in the late winter or very early in the springtime with daffodil. Needs a mate for fruit. Space @ 20 feet Zones 4-7.
