"Classic, but bold." is a great phrase to describe The Cherokee Brave® Flowering Dogwood. This dogwood shares the natural elegance, textured bark and beautiful dark green leaves of the north american white dogwood, but also stands out from the crowd with bright pink flowers that cover the tree in the spring. Unlike the softer more subdued shades of the classic red and pink north american dogwoods, the Cherokee Brave stands out with a very bold and strong pink bloom that contrasts with streaks of white that run through each petal. If you love dogwoods, but would like a heavier dose of color, then the Cherokee Brave is for you.
