One of the earliest spring bloomers.
The Eastern Redbud (Cercis canadensis) is one of the first trees to flower in the spring. What a welcome sight for you and your neighbors after a long winter.
Large, showy clusters of soft pink to magenta flowers appear in late winter or early spring.
The Eastern Redbuds unique form and shape are highlighted by the blooms as they can grow right out of the trunk and branches. The tree will be truly covered in gorgeous pink to purple blossoms.
Soon after your Redbud blooms, light green, perfectly heart shaped leaves will emerge. This forms the perfect backdrop to enhance the stunning blossoms color.
From summer to fall the leaves transform from a shimmering light green; will darken to a beautiful emerald green and finally turn a bright golden yellow.
The Eastern Redbud grows 1-2 feet a year; its mature height is 20-30 feet. A perfect size if you have limited space but this tree can stand out even in the largest yard.
