CORNELIAN CHERRY DOGWOOD
This early-blooming small tree can be used as a specimen or as a hedge. Clusters of bright yellow flowers bloom in March-April, and make a bold statement in the landscape. Flowers develop into edible, tart, bright red drupes in August and September. Glossy green leaves turn red-purple in the fall. Mature trees have interesting exfoliating grayish-brown bark. A tough tree for the home landscape.
