Cornus mas is a vigorous, bushy, deciduous shrub or small tree with exfoliating bark and ovate, dark green leaves which turn purple in autumn. The clusters of tiny bright yellow flowers on short stalks bloom in late winter on bare branches, before the leaves emerge. Flowers are followed by edible, red, cherry-like fruits that can be used for making syrups and jams. Cornus mas is easily grown in average, medium moist, well-drained soils, in full sun to partial shade. It can grow in almost any type of soil, but prefers organically rich soils. Generally, pest-free and disease-free. Low maintenance and resistant to frost. To prevent spread, root suckers need to be removed immediately. Cornus mas is a very adaptable, highly decorative early-bloomer that brings brightness and colour to bare winter gardens. It is perfect as an unusual specimen plant, great for shrub borders, hedges and screens, informal and cottage gardens.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
