'Spring Glow' Cornelian Cherry Dogwood
Partial Sun to Full Sun
Cornus officinalis 'Spring Glow' is a selection of Cornelian cherry dogwood by the JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh, NC. 'Spring Glow' blooms in late March with bright yellow clustered blooms that would almost remind you of a forsythia. The tree form of 'Spring Glow' is upright and uniform. During the summer, red fruits begin to appear on the tree which I have eaten numerous times. They are quite a tasty treat for me and for wildlife. The fruit are sometimes use in making jams or jellies.
While they are tasty, the red fruits also make a beautiful ornamental appeal with red cherry-like fruit hanging over the green leaves. Fall color on the leaves 'Spring Glow' is a bright red to deep maroon. The bark on 'Spring Glow' gives this tree year-round interest. Originally listed as a cornus mas, it was later recognized as cornus officinalis. 'Spring Glow' may reach 15-20 ft in 15 years. Cornus officinalis 'Spring Glow' makes a perfect ornamental tree for any garden, especially the edible landscape.
