My favourite of the small tree Cornus. In early summer it is covered with large lime green flowers, and in october they are followed by round red fruits.

The large fruits in November are eaten by blackbirds. The stones in the centre of the fruit are easy to germinate, but they don't seem to come up on their own in the garden.

In a good year the inflorecences turn raspberry-pink as they age. In a cold, wet summer they just turn brown and the bracts drop.
