Planning to install this yourself? We recommend a size 15 Gallon or smaller for DIY installations. These sizes do not require any offloading equipment.
Any tree or shrub that is sized by HEIGHT or CAL (Caliper- size where the trunk meets the root flare) is delivered with a large root ball wrapped in burlap (B&B). They are typically 1000+ LBS per plant. They will require heavy equipment to install. Installation is not included in the price of the plant. We highly recommend adding the ServeScape ‘One-Click’ Installation service (must be added at the cart page) for material of this size, or working with a contractor that can provide equipment for installation.

For any tree or shrub that is sized larger than 10’ HEIGHT or 3” CAL, the customer will be required to provide offloading equipment or a contractor to offload unless paying for installation through ServeScape. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor can have equipment ready upon your plant's arrival!
**Dormancy Note - This plant is currently dormant for the winter! It is available for purchase! Your delivered plant may be dormant, or showing very little top growth. However, you can still plant! These plants are putting all their energy into root production, so they will be ready to thrive in the spring! If you have any issues with your plant the following peak season, you can fill out our return request form to request a replacement plant.

The Cherokee Brave Dogwood, also known as Cornus florida 'Cherokee Brave', is a cultivar of the flowering dogwood tree. It is a stunning ornamental tree that is highly valued for its vibrant pink to reddish-pink flowers and attractive foliage.

The Cherokee Brave Dogwood produces large, showy flowers that bloom in spring. The flowers are a deep pink or reddish-pink color, creating a striking display against the tree's dark green leaves. As the flowers fade, they are replaced by clusters of red berries, which add further visual interest.

In terms of size, the Cherokee Brave Dogwood is a small to medium-sized tree, typically reaching a height of about 20 to 30 feet (6 to 9 meters) with a spread of 15 to 25 feet (4.5 to 7.5 meters). It has a rounded or vase-shaped growth habit and attractive foliage that turns reddish-purple in the fall.

The Cherokee Brave Dogwood is a great choice for adding beauty and color to your landscape. It prefers partial shade and well-drained soil.
