Japanese Cornel Dogwood - 20 Seeds
Cornus officinalis
Japanese Cornelian Cherry, Shanzhuyu (Sour Mountain Date,) Shan Zhu You

Description: The Japanese Cornel Dogwood is very picturesque due to its horizontal, tiered branching and extremely wide crown. Rather than rounding its crown with maturity, the Giant Dogwood often continues to tier more layers. This species and the much smaller Pagoda Dogwood (Cornus alternifolia) are the only two dogwoods that bear their leaves alternately, rather than opposite. The leaf is dark green and smooth above, blue-green beneath, carried on long, slender stalks, and clustered at the tips of the shoots. In contrast to most other dogwoods, the Giant Dogwood produces very small creamy-white flowers clustered in large heads in late May and early June.
