Eagerly looking forward to the blooms of spring, but for now I’ll take the buds on branches in the gardens. Harvesting the branches with yellow buds of the cornus mas help me to add structure and height to designs. This design was for a celebration of life ceremony.
Here is the cornus mas in the gardens today. What a delight to find blooms while waiting for spring to arrive. Definitely a good tree for a smaller space.
This is a close up of the blooms. The leaves come after the blooms and are a nice dark green oval shape.
