Cornus mas 'Violacea'

'Violacea' Purple Fruiting Cornelian Cherry Dogwood

Zones 4-9

Partial Sun to Full Sun

Edible Ornamental

Cornus mas is one of  the most underutilized trees in the landscape and garden. You get both the ornamental appeal and fruit production. Yellow flowers, not like your typical native dogwood, occur in early spring occur just when you think you can't stand winter any longer. The cherry-like fruits mature to deep purple-blue, hence the name 'Violacea'. These fruits are edible and are fairly sweet. I think they taste like candy. Leaves are glossy, dark green through the summer usually turning to a brilliant red in the fall. A nice textured and exfoliating like bark gives year round interest, even through winter.  Cornus mas 'Violacea' reaches about 8-10 ft tall and wide in 10 years.
