An improvement upon the classic Cherokee Chief Dogwood lineage. Apache Red is an excellent selection of red flowering dogwood grown for its vigor and large heavy bloom set. The blooms of this dogwood are pink with deep red streaks and centers giving it a deeper shade of pink/red than most pink dogwoods on the market. 

Apache Red shares the natural elegance, textured bark, and beautiful dark green leaves of the classic pink dogwood but guarantees true to color rose-red blooms. The beauty of this tree is easily accentuated by a white backdrop from a house, fence, or tree like a larger white blooming dogwood or spring snow crabapple. Dogwood trees are incredibly underrated in the fall, their prism of reds, purples, and oranges easily rivals a maple tree for best in show. For those who love birds, dogwood trees are a great choice. The berries will attract songbirds, but are no-mess as they are small and non-sticky. Given all of these positives it is no wonder that dogwoods are one of the most beloved North American trees.

Apache Red Flowering Dogwood has taken off

Packaged very well, planted immediately in early May, now just past May 29 has leafed out completely.. Very nice branching. I am impressed with the quality of the stock. Bought many exotic trees from them over the last few years. I love my Very rare Alley Cat Redbud.

Dogwoods doing well

Two dogwoods (30 inches) arrived 2 weeks ago. The box was a bit beat up, but the trees were in excellent condition. Planted them according to instructions and they are waking up and looking good. Both trees came looking very healthy with nice branching. Would definitely buy from this nursery again (Boston).
