Edible Dogwoods

Cornus species
We have selected these unusual and hard to get Dogwood varieties for their delicious fruit.

Our dogwoods are beautiful small ornamental trees with attractive summer foliage and fall color. Many American gardeners plant dogwoods for their ornamental beauty, but in Russia and elsewhere they are prized for their heavy production of delicious fruit.
