eastern redbud

Cercis canadensis

Delicate deep ink blossoms and buds are one of the earliest spring displays. Unique and irregular branching patterns combine with a trunk that divides close to the ground to create a very handsome, spreading and often flat-topped crown. Height of 20–30’ and a spread of 25–35’ at a medium rate, with height increases of 13–24” per year.

c. ‘Covey’ Weeping branches can be trained from an early ageto create a beautiful umbrella of cascading branches covered in heart shaped leaves. These little weepers grow 5–6’ tall and 6–8’ wide.

c. ‘Merlot’ Lustrous, dark purple foliage extends the ornamental value of the redbud from spring flowers to colorful summer foliage! Reaches 12-15’ tall and wide.
