Product details

Introduced in the late 1890s the Cornelian Cherry gives a very long period of interest.

A native of central and southern Europe it won the Award of Merit in 1929.

From February onwards when the small yellow flowers appear on the bare twigs this Cornus puts on a great display.

The bright red cherry-like fruits are edible and the leaves turn a delightful reddish purple in autumn.

Often grown as a multi-stem bush we have managed to raise ours on a single stem to 1.8m with a well balanced and compact crown.

A very good choice for parks. It thrives on most free draining soils.

Mature height: 3-7m

Mature spread: 2-4m
