Cornelian Cherry
Cornus mas
A unique species of Dogwood, Cornelian Cherry is both a fine ornamental and, with our unique Ukrainian varieties, a producer of delicious and attractive fruit. Very early blooming, the charming frost-hardy yellow flowers of Cornelian Cherry appear in late February and are followed by large, fire-engine red or bright yellow fruit. An attractive shrub or small tree, Cornelian Cherry grows slowly to 10 to 12 feet in height and is hardy to minus 30°F. For fruit, two varieties are required for cross-pollination.
