This is a flowering shrub/tree whose flowers are creamy-yellow with pink tinges; they turn into a pink fruit (?) like a large raspberry; I don't know what the plant is, or if the fruit is edible !




looks like a Cornus Kouza/Kousa? (although the leaves on mine don't look so green & healthy!)

If it is Cornus kousa then the inside of the fruit is supposed to be very edible See here

Looked again at my cornus, & the flower shape is different - the petals come to a point - but maybe it's a different type? Don't know, sorry!
