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.

My new little Dogwood
I ordered a 2-3 foot Cherokee Brave Dogwood and when it came (in a fabulous shipping box!) it measured 3.5 ft. tall and looked very healthy. It came in about 3 or 4 days and I planted it the next day. I can't WAIT for Spring to come so I can see it bloom! Although it's tall and narrow, i know it will get full and wide. Since I don't have many computer skills, I can't attach a photo now or in the future (sorry)

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.

It's a pretty tree that I can use to offset the white of the Cleveland Pear that I have in my front yard.
Frank D on Nov 13, 2017
I liked the fact that it was cold hardy, as I live in zone 6. I also liked that the tree is moderate to fast growing, tends to be fairly upright, and doesn't grow too tall. It doesn't hurt that it's strikingly beautiful too!

Our beloved pet & companion recently passed. We are planting this tree in our backyard & creating a commemorative garden. He was a stoic & brave protector so the name & appearance seem quite appropriate.

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.
What time of year can (should) this tree be planted?
Steve G on Jul 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We planted ours in the fall and it wintered nicely with watering. It produced one flower this year but that was perfect as it was planted as a memorial to our granddaughter who passed. The flower was stunning and the tree is very healthy.
what is the correct way to water the Cherokee Brave Dogwood Tree?
Gloria P on Apr 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Water around the perimeter of the planting site, not directly at the trunk. Tree roots follow water, and this makes the roots expand outward.
Do I need to amend the soil with planting soil and do I need to use a root stimulant?
Ross F on Oct 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: All I used was some mushroom compost mixed it in with the soil and every fall and spring use a fertilizer 4-3-4 and they are doing awesome.
Does this tree have an evasive root system? How far should I plant it from underground water and gas lines?
Frank D on Nov 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: That would be a great question that you could research via the internet to get a better answer than I could give you
Is this tree deer resistant?
Kenny on Apr 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It seems to be, we live in an area with abundant wild deer, and there has been no indication of deer munching away!
Does this tree grow well in low desert environment like Palm Spring (Zone 9) high heat in summer?
