Quick Overview:

Cornus florida, commonly known as flowering dogwood, is a small deciduous tree that typically grows 15-30? tall with a low-branching, broadly-pyramidal but somewhat flat-topped habit. It arguably may be the most beautiful of the native American flowering trees. ‘Comco No. 1’ is a red-bracted flowering dogwood that is commonly sold under the trade name of CHEROKEE BRAVE. Flowers feature red bracts that fade to white in the center.

Description

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Prefers moist, organically rich, acidic soils in part shade. Benefits from a 2-4? mulch which will help keep roots cool and moist in summer. CHEROKEE BRAVE reportedly has better drought resistance than most flowering dogwood cultivars available in commerce.
