Cornus officinalis 'Kintoki'

Cornus officinalis 'Kintoki'
山茱萸 (サンシュユ)
Flowering in our garden this week is Cornus officinalis 'Kintoki', the Asian version of Cornus mas (Cornelian Cherry). Cornus officinalis flowers are just a touch deeper yellow in color and the bark is more exfoliating. The cultivar Kintoki is a semi dwarf selection.
