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. ‘Cherokee Princess? is a cultivar that is noted for its consistently early and heavy bloom of flowers with large white bracts. Good rust-red fall color. Originally introduced in 1959-60 as C. florida ?Sno-White?.
