Cornus mas - Cornelian Cherry

  • This ornamental, large shrub is made up of dark green, shiny ovate leaves which turn a reddish purple during the autumn. In the spring time, before the leaves develop, masses of tiny, pretty golden-yellow flowers appear like a golden mist around the bare stems. This plant in particular gives your garden a glow during the drab, winter days. In mid-summer, bright red 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.
