Cherokee Brave Flowering Dogwood
The two photos were taken about 10 days apart.
A small vigorous tree with wide horizontal branching, that can develop a layered effect. The reddish pink bracts have a white eye. Many consider this one of the darkest pink-red selections. The fall color is deep red to burgundy. It is resistant to mildew and more drought tolerant than other Dogwoods. It prefers moist, well-drained soil in full sun or part shade. Introduced to the trade in the mid 1990's by Commercial Nursery. PP 10,166.
