Cornus florida Cherokee Chief is a large deciduous shrub or a small tree with rounded, symmetrical habit and graceful horizontal branches. Its attractive foliage is bronze-red in spring, green in summer and burgundy-red in autumn. Beautiful, large, star-like, deep ruby-red flowers emerge in spring before the leaves. Flowers are followed by red fruit that cling from bare branches throughout the winter. Cornus florida Cherokee Chief grows best in fertile, acidic to neutral, moist but well-drained soil, in partial shade. It tolerates full sun, but needs to be sheltered in exposed places. Generally, pest-free. It is more heat and disease resistant than other members of the species. Low maintenance, doesn’t require pruning. Cornus florida Cherokee Chief is a stunning landscape tree all year round. It is perfect as a specimen plant and equally attractive when planted in groups. Great around patios, in lawns, or in woodland gardens.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
