Why plant USDA Organic Cherokee Brave® Flowering Dogwood?

Organic care of your property begins with planting, and the USDA Organic Cherokee Brave® Flowering Dogwood will elevate the health of your garden and beautify your landscape. This flowering dogwood has breathtakingly vivid magenta blooms that are kissed with white edges. Blooming in early spring on bare branches, blanketing the tree in large pink blossoms. The foliage unfurls burgundy, then matures to forest-green as the flowers are still blooming. When fall comes around, the leaves turn bright crimson to light up your garden. Just when you think everything is about to come to a close as winter arrives, your Cherokee Brave® Dogwood harvests small strawberry-like fruits, sweet enough for you and the birds to enjoy! What makes this tree so brave? It is extremely disease-resistant, cold-hardy, and very easy to grow! Practicing good gardening methods, like planting USDA Organic Cherokee Brave® Flowering Dogwood Trees, will ensure that your tree will grow properly and give you years of enjoyment.

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 USDA Organic 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!

What does it mean to be USDA Organically grown?

  • USDA Organic crops are grown exclusively on land that has gone without having non-USDA Organic approved substances applied for three years.
  • No pesticides for us, please! Organically grown crops are highly regulated on what can and cannot be used for pest control—worried about harsh chemicals that have been sprayed on your plant? There is only a small number of approved synthetic chemicals that are allowed to be used. Otherwise, farmers use strict biological, mechanical, and physical management practices.
  • Not just any type of seeds are used to grow and harvest organic plants: farmers can only use organic seeds or organically raised seedlings in their organic fields.
  • Only the best handling is allowed! Organic and non-organic crops are not allowed to be commingled or near each other. Cross-contamination can occur, botching the organic plant's purity due to non-organic substances that could have been sprayed on non-organic harvests; this would cause the organic plant to be considered compromised.
  • Fields are carefully cultivated through crop rotation and proper tillage practices to ensure that the soil and the soil's nutrients are kept at a happy balance. Animal manure, not sludge, is allowed to help infuse the soil with nitrogen to support the growth of the organic crops.

How To Plant USDA Organic 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. Be sure to keep your Dogwood watered after planting, they like moist soil, but not constantly wet soil. Apply a low rate tree fertilizer during the fall to promote healthy growth and flowers next spring. 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. On top of that, they really don’t need a lot of pruning, but if you feel it’s necessary to prune, please do so after the tree is done flowering in the spring.

How To Water

Water regularly after initial planting. Once established, they are more tolerant of drought conditions, reducing your hand-watering responsibilities.

How To Fertilize

Dogwoods like fertilizer! During fall, feed your Dogwood Bower & Branch Elements Fertilizer once a year for about the first 3 or 4 years - this will give your tree all the nutrients it needs.

How To Prune

Dogwoods should be pruned so that dead branches and twigs that may be diseased can be removed. Do not compost any disease branches, dispose of them appropriately in the garbage.

We deliver your trees and plants directly to you. Ask Bower & Branch about planting services – we'd be happy to assist in installation..

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!
