Description:
This species of Dogwood deserves better recognition in general horticulture. It is a small to medium sized deciduous tree, growing up to 5-7 meters (15-20ft) in height, with a similar spread. In late winter delicate clusters of beautifully scented yellow flowers emerge before the leaves. Bloom time can last well over a month. The bright to dark red fruit, known as Cornelian Cherries or Cornels, develop and ripen near the end of summer. The fruit is edible and suitable for a number a dishes, both sweet and savoury. In the autumn the leaves turn rich shades of scarlet tinged with purple.

Cultivation:
For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant. Sow large seeds in containers in late winter to early spring. Cover with a thin layer of scree (fine pebbles - to prevent rain from splashing out soil). Grow in average to moderately fertile garden soil.
