A very popular ornamental tree among dogwood cultivars. At springtime, 'Cherokee Chief' is blanketed in rosy, red flowers that fade to white in the centers with an attractive tiered habit as well; a stunning springtime flowering tree that requires rich, well-drained acidic soil and adequate moisture. Has an attractive, yellow-variegated green foliage that emerges burgundy in spring and the pointy leaves which are highly ornamental turn to a brick red color in the fall followed by a production of red berries that wildlife enjoys in the winter.

Grows up to 30' feet tall at maturity and does have a low canopy with about 4 feet of clearance from the ground, something to consider when placing tree in landscape.

Marylanders Plant Trees

From the Maryland Department of Natural Resources:

"We launched Marylanders Plant Trees in 2009 to encourage citizens and organizations to partner with the State to plant new trees. Today, citizens can still take advantage of our coupon program to receive $25 off the purchase of a native tree at 86 participating nurseries across the State. The State cost of $20 per coupon is funded through a settlement from a major power generator for Clean Air Act violations, in partnership with the Office of the Attorney General, and Maryland’s participating tree vendors are generously absorbing the remaining $5.

Trees must be planted in the state of Maryland to qualify for $25 off coupon.
Wholesale customers do not qualify.
