An Explosion of Pink In The Spring

Just when winter has reached the point where you can’t stand to wear a scarf and gloves again, the Eastern Redbud (Cercis canadensis) bursts into a pink cotton candy ball of blossoms.

The flowers come straight out of the branches and even the trunk. They pop out before the leaves do. When the leaves do show, though, they are perfectly heart-shaped and a lovely light green. One look at this tree in its full spring glory will bring a smile to your face.

Another thing that will make you smile is how carefree this tree is. Since it is a native to the America’s, from the Great Lakes down to Texas, it adapts easily to most soils and doesn’t need a lot of your attention. It grows 1 to 2 feet per year until it peaks out at 20 – 30 feet.

In the fall, the leaves turn a soft golden yellow. When they drop off, the bean-like seed pods that have formed on the tree branches throughout the summer remain. They give the tree an interesting texture during the winter.

If you are looking for a low-maintenance, knockout flowering tree, this is it. Buy a few of Nature Hills Nursery stock before they sell out this year. They are a great bargain and will return their price in beauty many times over.

Great tree! Review by Aryana
I have a few of these in my yard already grew naturally, but they are in the woods with the Pine Trees, so I do not get to enjoy them as much as I want when they flower, so I bought one to plant in the middle of the yard. The tree came in great shape when it was delivered, can't wait to watch it grow and flower!
Buy lots! Review by David
I am amazed at how fast they grow. I now have six in my yard interspersed with Japanese Bloodgoods. Came here today to buy another, but they only have the shorter ones available. I'm too impatient to wait to see them in full glory. I'll keep checking back to see when they have 6-8 footers available.
First in the spring Review by Vann
My eastern redbud looks so cold and lonely siting in the snow but I keep looking at it because I know it will be one of the first plants to usher me into the glory of spring.
wonderful tree Review by Marti B
Eastern redbuds never fail to awaken my affection for nature every spring. My favorite blooming tree.
Packaging Review by Alice Ann L
My eastern redbud arrived in great shape. It was very well protected and secured in the box sent from Nature Hills.
