The 'Cherokee Sunset' flowering dogwood is another cultivar descended from the 'Cherokee Chief', this tree shares the elegant form, red/pink bracts, purple fall color, and red fall/winter berries, but also introduces variegated leaves. The leaves are green with wavy/jagged yellow borders and in the fall the leaves turn a beautify burgundy with a showy red border. Like the 'Cherokee Chief' these trees are more heat tolerant and disease resistant than true cornus florida. 

Dogwoods make excellent stand alone trees, and highlight trees for your garden. They offer a year round beauty with stunning spring flowering, elegant branching structure, and interesting bark.

Cherokee Sunset Flowering Dogwood

I can't wait for spring 2022 to see my Cherokee Sunset Flowering Dogwood with varigated leaves and salmon colored flowers. Thank you so will be well worth the wait to see my beautiful tree blooming.

It's too soon to tell; it is only 2' tall and doesn't have any flowers. It arrived very well packed, and looks very healthy. I'll be able to tell better when it grows taller and gets some flowers

'Tis a bit early to judge anything but the service since it is still just a twig. But I like your story and your gardening outlook.
Were I not so old I like to think we had started a long relationship.
