kizilovoye derevo


Explanation:

The Russian word for «dogwood» and «cornelian cherry» (= Lat. Cornus gen.) is «kizil». This word can be used to denote both the berries and the tree itself. In your context, however, it will sound better in Russian, if you specify that the tree - rather than the fruit - is meant. Therefore, I would use «kizilovoye derevo». Below is a possible Russian translation of your sentence:

Odno iz naschikh kizilovykh derevyev ne vyzhilo etoy zimoy.
