Cornus florida Cherokee Chief

Flowering Dogwood Cherokee Chief

Grown for its lovely spring flowers and brilliant autumn colour, Cornus florida Cherokee Chief is a large, deciduous shrub or small tree with a bushy, spreading, branching habit. The ovate leaves emerge bronze, turning bright green over summer and rich shades of burgundy red and purple in autumn. In April, masses of flowers with showy, four-petalled, ruby-red bracts cover the plant, slowly fading to pale pink. These are followed by clusters of large red berries, which are edible and attractive to birds. Flowering dogwood Cherokee Chief is an easy, low maintenance shrub.
