I have a Cornus florida 'Cherokee Brave' that started out fine in my mother's yard then experienced severe freeze damage (around '10) in which about half of the foliage died. I cut it back to the healthy portions but she thought it so ugly in that state that she tossed it. Of course I brought it home with me. The entire canopy died after the transplant but new growth has started up from the base, which leads me to wonder if this particular variety is normally grafted? It originally came from Rare Find, so would have been (IMO) a well grown quality tree. Enclosed are photos of how it is doing now. Of course when it is large enough to flower again I will know for sure, but better to know earlier so I can replace it if it is going to be something too... generic. Not trying to be a tree snob, but space is not unlimited and this is a fairly prime spot. Thank you for any thoughts!
