    • n cornel The cornelian cherry or dogwood, a common European species of Cornus, C. mas, a small tree producing clusters of small yellow flowers in spring before the leaves, followed by numerous red berries. The wild or male cornel is C. sanguinea, a shrub with red bark and black berries. The wood is free from grit, and for this reason is used by watch-makers to make instruments for cleaning fine machinery or lenses. In North America the bunchberry, C. Canadensis, is sometimes called the low or dwarf cornel, and C. circinata the round-leafed cornel. The name may be applied generally to species of the genus Cornus. Also cornel-tree, cornelian tree.
