Cherokee Princess Dogwood Tree
Cornus florida 'Cherokee Princess'

Covered in gorgeous, large 3 to 5 inch wide white flowers, the Cherokee Princess Dogwood will light up your garden in spring. The foliage is rich green until fall when it puts on another spectacular show of color with rich red to purple-red on top and hues of silver underneath for a unique bi-color effect. For an even more spectacular springtime show, include a Pink or Red Dogwood tree to your garden. The wonderful flower combination is an amazing sight to see!

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 15 to 20 feet tall and wide at maturity, the Cherokee Princess White Dogwood is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings or in a staggered rows in sunny or shady landscape or woodland borders. Also nice to frame the corners of  homes and to provide beauty and some shade around patios, porches and other outdoor living spaces. A fine addition to woodland gardens, white theme gardens, and cottage gardens.

Suggested Spacing:  25 feet or more apart for space between trees; 10-15' or more from the home

Growing Preferences

Dogwood trees are adaptable to many soil types, preferring a moist but well-drained soil rich in organic matter. Constantly soggy or wet soils are problematic. Though Dogwood trees will tolerate full sun, we think they look and perform best with some shade or filtered sun during the hottest part of summer afternoons. Maintenance is minimal to none. Except to remove a stray or broken branch, no pruning is necessary.
