Edible Dogwood Collection

  • We have carefully curated a collection of our edible dogwood trees and shrubs which produce countless delicious fruits.  

  • The rare Edible Dogwood Collection contains one of each plant in either an 8cm or 9cm pot.

  • Cornelian Cherry - Cornus mas (20cm tall): 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.

  • Flowering Dogwood - Cornus kousa (15-20cm tall): Originates from China and is a small but tough deciduous tree that has an average growth rate. During late Spring – early Summer it produces large, cream-white flowers that can reach up to 15cm in length. The autumn colour and flowers are the main key features of the tree with it being very showy when in bloom and in the autumn the glossy, large leaves turning to rich oranges, yellows and purples. The more mature trees are known to occasionally produce 2-3cm in diameter, strawberry like fruits that are of a pinky red colour. The fruit is the Flowering Dogwood's ornamental value with it being a delicious and sweet edible addition, it can sometimes be used for making wine.

  • Himalayan Dogwood - Cornus capitata (15-20cm tall): An elegant, large shrub that has evergreen foliage and creamy coloured flowers that open in the Summer.  The Himalayan Dogwood has strawberry-like, large, orange-red fruits that are edible as well as being an ideal source for squirrels and birds.
