Cornelian-cherry dogwood is well-adapted for management in small urban spaces as a small single stem tree, in a clump, or pruned into a hedge. Its fruit is sour and astringent but can be processed to make a jam, sauce, or dried fruit. The fruit is distilled to make spirits across much of its native range in Europe and southwestern Asia.
