CORNUS mas ‘Jolico’ is a wonderful plant for many reasons. For starters, it brings a flood of yellow flowers in midwinter when it blooms on its bare wood.
Then it produces fruits, also called cornels, twice the usual size. These fruits are rich in vitamin C and edible. They are eaten almost ripe or nearly too ripe when they start to soften.
Finally, in autumn, its usually green foliage takes on a beautiful yellow color.
Its common name is Cornelian cherry ‘Jolico’ or European cornel ‘Jolico’.
