Cornus florida is a superb, deciduous shrub known to add texture and vibrancy to any garden, it has showy, whitish-green flowers in clusters that cover the whole of the plant during the Spring time. During autumn, the Flowering Dogwood provides further seasonal interest. The foliage turns vibrant shades of purple and red and is followed (crop varies yearly) by clusters of ornamental red berries, very acidic raw, but usable for jams and jellies when cooked (some experts say it may be poisonous to humans if eaten in large quantities). Our Cornus florida can grow to a maximum height of 3 x 3 meters in 20 years meaning that it is an ideal choice for those who have smaller spaces to fill.
