The Nation's Most Colorful Dogwood

By being cold hardy to zone 5 Cherokee Brave Dogwoods stand up to ice, snow, and freezing temperatures where other dogwood varieties perish. Nothing stops Cherokee Brave Dogwoods from providing color all year.

Your friends and neighbors will love gazing at the Cherokee Brave Dogwood’s large four petal blossoms that have a unique red hue that fades into a white center. The flowers glow in the landscape and will cause your garden to be the most beautiful one in the neighborhood.

Cherokee Brave Dogwoods bloom very early in the spring to fill the countryside with warm color that lets us know that winter has passed. When their bright red blossoms emerge they signal that warmer temperatures and vibrant spring colors are on their way. 

When Cherokee Brave Dogwood leaves first emerge they have a red tint before maturing to lush, green leaves that fill in to create an attractive canopy that shades the area beneath it. In the fall the leaves turn a shade of maroon for a dazzling display of colorful fall foliage. 

Once the leaves drop they make way for vibrant red berries that pop against the Cherokee Brave Dogwood’s stunning grey trunk. They fill the countryside with color while other plants are dull and brown during the winter.

The showy red berries are a food source for birds, and invite them to perch in the Cherokee Brave’s branches. In exchange for a delicious snack the birds chirp and hop from branch to branch to entertain spectators.

Cherokee Brave Dogwood trees are smaller ornamental trees that only reach heights of 20 to 30 feet, so they can fit perfectly in any landscape. Even those with limited space. They will flourish with unrivaled beauty without taking over the yard. 

They earn their strong warrior title, ‘Cherokee Brave’ because they are tough and low maintenance. They are pest and disease resistant, while also being drought tolerant. Simply plant your new Cherokee Brave Dogwoods and watch them thrive.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Cherokee Brave Dogwood

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Cherokee Brave Dogwood .

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Cherokee Brave Dogwood gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Cherokee Brave Dogwood again after the transplant is complete.

How often can I water this Cherokee brave dogwood tree?
JINSOO L on Jul 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Dogwood trees possess very shallow root systems that are susceptible to drying out in the absence of regular rainfall. It is best to water your tree once or twice a week. Be sure, though, to water correctly. Light green leaves are a sign of over watering, while drooping leaves signify both over watering and under watering. Watch for these and any other signs that your tree is getting too much or too little water.
