Variegated with white, yellow and subtle red tones of a morning sunrise, the leaves of the Cherokee Daybreak Dogwood are eye catching, but not overpowering. Cherokee Daybreak has the natural elegance, textured bark and song bird attracting red berries of the traditional North American white dogwood, but also adds a soft blend of unexpected color to your home, patio, garden or yard. Who knows, you might love not waking up early to catch a glimpse of the sunrise.
