Native to: Central and Southern Europe and Western Asia Crown: Rounded oval Height: 20 - 25 feet Width: 15 - 20 feet Growth Rate: Moderate
Characteristics: Yellowish flowers appear in March and last approximately three weeks. The fall foliage may be purplish red depending on the weather. It is a relatively pest-free tree.
Negative Features: Low branching and multi-stemmed habit requires regular pruning to develop tree form and maintain an 8'-10' high canopy suitable for street tree use.
Uses: Good for narrow setbacks or tight spaces underneath wires and in cul-de-sacs. Good for highlights, entry features and street situations where there is little room on arterial, collector and residential streets. Best used in limited quantity. This is a good choice when a shorter tree is necessary in order not to obscure a view.
Comments: Cornelian Cherry is a good, small tree that needs cultivation for best results.
