April,

you may get thousands of replies, but:

Cornus mas is the botanical name for what some call Cornelian cherry.

Autumn olive is Eleagnus angustifolia.  Not sure what you're using them
for (wildlife food is usual, or drought tolerance), but autumn olive in
particular is often considered to be an undesirable tree.  Use with
caution - it can be invasive.
