Cherokee Chief® shares the natural elegance, textured bark and beautiful dark green leaves, of the classic white 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.
