Spectacular Spring and Fall Foliage Changes

A showstopping native Dogwood with a new point of beauty for every season of the year.

From its early spring blooms of white-eyed red to its magnificent maroon fall leaves, Cherokee Brave™ is among the most beautiful trees you can find for the home landscape. Compact and easy to grow, this selection of an American native species is ideal as an accent, specimen, or mass planting.

The year begins with beautiful red-petaled, white-eyed blooms, arising before the foliage on bare stems. They last for several weeks, attracting the first butterflies of the season.

As the flowers pass, the foliage arises, boasting burgundy and cerise tones among the green. By the time the warm weather arrives, the leaves are pure green and studded with large red berries, beloved of birds, that remain into fall and even winter.

Autumn brings another beautiful change to this tree: the leaves turn brilliant shades of maroon before dropping. And in winter, the furrowed bark of the Dogwood offers interesting texture and a fine bare silhouette! There -- a complete year of changing beauty.

Cherokee Brave™ reaches just 15 feet high and no more than 20 feet wide at maturity, thriving in full sun and any well-drained soil. This native species is very resistant to pests and diseases, thriving in poor soils though flowering best in better conditions. You will find it easy to grow and endlessly beautiful.
