The Cherokee Princess® Dogwood is an older cultivar characterized by an early and abundant display of snow white blooms. This dogwood makes a wonderful show piece near to your home or patio in an open space or among other trees. In the spring the shear volume of blooms will blow you away, and in the early winter/fall the brick red leaves and abundant red berries will attract a variety of song birds to your yard.

It came in good condition and still seems to be thriving. Check back with me in a year. I have never been able to grow a dogwood even though I live in Missouri and all of neighbors have one
This was my first order with New Blooms, but it will definitely not be my last. As a Louisiana Master Gardener, I am very picky about plant quality when making an online purchase. Communication with New Blooms management both prior to and after my purchase was exceptional, and made my purchase experience enjoyable. New Blooms not only met my expectations... they exceeded them. The extremely healthy dogwood tree arrived promptly, with appropriate packing to keep it hydrated during shipping without promoting fungus. THANK YOU for such a pleasurable buying experience!
