Redbud, Eastern

Latin Name: Cercis canadensis

A spectacular spring bloomer, with very showy pink to purple flowers held tightly on bare branches in early spring; somewhat coarse heart-shaped leaves; grown as a single-stem tree form, ideal as a showy spring feature or accent.

Eastern Redbud (tree form) is a deciduous tree with a strong central leader and a shapely oval form. Its relatively coarse texture can be used to stand it apart from other landscape plants with finer foliage.

This is a relatively low maintenance tree, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers.
