Cornus mas - Cornelian Cherry

  • Cornus mas is a large ornamental shrub or small tree made up of dark green, shiny ovate leaves which turn a wonderful reddish purple during the autumn. Before the leaves develop, masses of tiny, golden-yellow flowers appear like a golden mist around the bare stems. The Cornelian Cherry in particular gives your garden a glow during the drab, winter days. In the late summer, countless bright red, soured cherry like fruits are formed which, when fully ripe are used for making a delicious sauce (similar to the traditional cranberry sauce) or jams. The fruit tastes sweet as well as acidic at the same time. The whole plant diffuses an interesting, fruity scent – even when not in fruit.

  • We have excellent quality, 15-20cm tall starter plants on offer.
