Cherokee Daybreak (Cornus florida 'Daybreak') is another interesting North American Flowering Dogwood variety. This tree has an upright branching form and has nice variegated leaves with creamy-white margins and splendid autumn colour. Its flowers are a pure white colour with green flower centres.
A small height tree, so expect a height of up to 4 metres (13 foot) after 10 years.
This tree is supplied at a height of between 0.8 and 1.3 metres in a 7 or 12 litre container for year round planting and better results than from either bare-root or rootballed stock.
Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.

All ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.
Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
