Cornus mas ‘Golden Glory’

Attractive yellow flowers in April lead to relatively large red fruit in the fall giving this Dogwood the common name “Cornelian Cherry.”


Cornus mas ‘Golden Glory’

These don’t seem overly popular and I’m not sure why. I haven’t seen a large specimen of this so it’s a little hard for me to judge how it performs but it can’t be much worse than a Forsythia and those things are everywhere!

    I've never seen a dogwood like this before. I'm surprised more people don't have it as well. Those forsythia really are everywhere. I'd like them if they didn't represent 80% of spring flowers. Argh.

    These dogwoods are a little bit more in the small tree category – Similar I suppose to a Pagoda Dogwood (Cornus alternifolia) – rather than shrub size of many other dogwoods (or what people expect from their Forsythias). See enough 12' Forsythias and I can't say there's a huge difference! (The Dogwood's less likely to be pruned as badly)
