Cornus florida 'Cherokee Princess' is an improved cultivar of flowering dogwood, a native, flowering tree species considered to be among the most spectacular flowering trees in United States at springtime. The 'Cherokee Princess' cultivar can be multi- or single-stemmed and typically grows to approximately 30' tall with horizontal branching out to a spread of about 35'.

In spring, 'Cherokee Princess' is covered by a profusion of long-lasting white bracts fills the tiered branches, followed by dense, attractive green foliage and bright red fruits in summer which are attractive to a number of bird species. In the fall months, persistent berries add further aesthetic appeal when autumn foliage turns to beautiful, bright shades of crimson and maroon. 'Cherokee Princess' grows best in part shade, may be best grown as an understory or forest margin tree in well drained soils. Additionally, since flowering dogwood can be sensitive to temperature swings, you can provide a 2-4" layer of mulch to help keep the roots cool and moist in hot summers.
