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 only dislike was a

    My only dislike was a Note that was to accompany the tree, was NEVER sent with the Tree. The tree was a symbol of life due to the death of a relative. This oversight was VERY, VERY unfortunate!
