This tree is wonderful for the winter garden. It is loaded with red fruits in fall, shows a fascinating peeling bark after frost, screams with yellow flowers in February sunshine. Great the rest of the year, too! Pest free, easy to grow. Try one! You won't be disappointed.

All Cornelian Cherries offer an array of truly exotic flavors that simply cannot be found in any other fruit. It is complex, a mix of floral tones with the sourness of a cranberry. It is the original ingredient in a delicious Persian sorbet and many expensive european liquors like Maraschino di Zadar.

Info

Very hardy. Prized for its ornamental bark and fruit, small stature, and disease-free character. March flowers provide a splash of yellow to herald the first days of spring. Variability in form and flower, however, motivates a trend toward using seedlings as rootstock for named varieties that are selected for abundant flowers and large fruit.

Info

A multi-stemmed, low-branching deciduous shrub with yellow blooms generally reaching 15-20' in height and width but can be trained as a small tree by removal of lower branches and suckers. The star-like flowers borne in umbels in late winter to early spring appear before the foliage and give way to tiny red drupes which can be used in jellies and syrups. The Drupes persist into Fall and are eaten by birds. It has attractive grayish brown bark which exfoliates on the mature branches. Useful for very early spring bloom and can be used as a hedge, screen or specimen plant. Will naturalize in woodland areas. European Native.

Info

From the Ukraine, these hardy and attractive ornamentals also offer large and tasty fruit. Frost-hardy yellow flowers appear in late February followed by fruit which turns bright red when ripe in September. Attractive as either a shrub or small tree, it grows slowly to 12-15'. Somewhat self-pollinating but for best fruit set, two varieties should be planted.
