Why plant Cherokee Brave® Flowering Dogwood?

Cherokee Brave® Flowering Dogwood is a captivating small tree you’ll want to plant outside your living room, dining room, or kitchen window, so you can enjoy it all year long. In spring, you’ll watch this king of ornamental trees blanket itself in coral-pink to white flowers the size and shape of butterflies perched on the branch tips. Summer brings lush green foliage to shade an intimate space for dining, playing, or relaxing. Deep red leaves follow in fall, but wait—there’s more! Songbirds will return again and again to the Cherokee Brave® Dogwood Tree Café to gather the glossy red fruits in autumn and winter. It’s a 365-day nature show, and you’ll have a front-row seat!

Cherokee Brave® couldn’t help but be noticed when it appeared on the scene. A chance seedling at the nursery of the late Hubert Nicholson of Decherd, Tennessee, it quickly outpaced its siblings, growing one and a half times as fast as other red-blooming Dogwoods. Its leaves were bigger, too, and the new growth was infused with rich purplish-red tones. In time, other distinctions became apparent—most importantly, the new tree seemed to have built-in defenses against powdery mildew and anthracnose. It was awarded a patent in 1997.

How to use Cherokee Brave® Flowering Dogwood in the landscape?

This "Brave" will conquer your garden, with color for different seasons. Fast-growing and mildew resistant, do you really need more reasons? Red and white flowers bloom in spring, before the new foliage appears. Leaves in summer are deep dark green, but only until Autumn nears. The weather cools and Autumn arrives, leaves change to burgundy red. Not only leaves, but berries as well, red berries is what I said! This multi-season stunner deserves a location front and center so you can enjoy the never-ending show!

How To Plant Cherokee Brave® Flowering Dogwood

These Dogwoods thrive in higher temperatures, but prefer morning sun and afternoon shade. Flowering Dogwoods also like more acidic soil conditions. Not all trees are perfect however, and there are a couple of common problems that occur: Anthracnose and borer. Anthracnose is a fungal disease that causes dead spots on leaves, twigs, or fruit. Borers are small insects that bore into the woody part of plants. Don’t let this discourage you - there is hope! Your best defense against these problems is proper tree care and maintenance, if your tree is under any stress (too much sun, too much or too little water) that’s when these problems will occur. However, the benefits far outweigh the negatives. You get beautiful flowers in spring, fruit that attracts birds, and great fall color.

How To Water

Be sure to keep your Dogwood watered after planting, they like moist soil, but not constantly wet soil. Once established, they are more tolerant of drought conditions, reducing your hand-watering responsibilities.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant Food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant Food granular form on an annual basis each fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.

How To Prune

On top of that the wonderful aspects of the Cherokee Brave® Dogwood, they really don’t need a lot of pruning. If you feel it’s necessary to prune, please do so after the tree is done flowering in the spring.

How Does Shipping Work?

Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our big trees, sizes XL and bigger, require expert delivery and care, that means our extra-large trees are shipped on Bower & Branch trucks. We are the only ones who know how to ship our big and bigger trees and plants with tender loving care. We deliver your trees and plants directly to you. Ask Bower & Branch about planting services – we'd be happy to assist in installation.

*Big trees and shrubs, Size XL and bigger, will take approximately 21 to 28 days to be delivered, during live shipping periods.

Your trees and plants are grown across the United States at various Bower & Branch Growers. Depending on your location, your plant orders may be shipped from various locations. Please expect orders with multiple items to be delivered over a number of days as a result. Orders made up of numerous items or selections will not arrive at your home on the same day.

Shipping Delays:

From time to time, Bower & Branch Growers may determine to delay order shipment based on various factors for plant health. Weather in your region, as well as, where your plants are grown, is always considered when shipping. Extreme weather conditions may delay some or all of your order. Bower & Branch allows our Growers to make final shipping decisions based solely to benefit your trees and plants’ health and success.

How Does Sizing Work?

The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)

Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.

All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
