The leaves turn a dark shade of red in the fall. The ‘Cherokee Princess’ cultivar is recommended for its generous foliage and early blooming. The red fruit that grows on this tree is inedible to humans but may attract wildlife. This tree will thrive in a sheltered area, safe from harsh winds and pollution. A thick mulch ring around your trees is always recommended, and the Dogwood tree will especially benefit from the extra protection in extreme temperatures.
