Did you maybe mean Cornus?
Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A genus of plants of the natural order Cornaceæ, consisting of shrubs, trees, or rarely herbs, with usually small white or yellowish flowers and ovoid drupes. There are about 25 species, mostly of the northern hemisphere, 15 belonging to the United States. The bark, especially of the root, has tonic and slightly stimulant properties, and is used as a remedy in intermittent fevers, etc. The flowering dogwoods, C. florida of the Atlantic States and C. Nuttallii on the Pacific coast, are small trees and very ornamental, having the small cyme surrounded by a large and conspicuous involucre of four white bracts. The wood is very hard, close-grained, and tough, and is used as a substitute for boxwood for making bobbins and shuttles for weaving, and also in cabinetwork. Some of the species, as C. Canadensis (the bunch-berry) and C. Suecica, are dwarfed and herbaceous, with similar showy flowers followed by clusters of red berries. See
