Ornamental Tree with Spring Color

The Eastern Whitebud is an ornamental tree with stunning spring color.  Plant several along the street or driveway for a colorful spring display, or just one as a specimen tree in the front yard.

The best feature of this tree is perhaps the extravagant show of blossoms it produces in the spring. 

The sweet-pea like, white flowers bloom profusely, covering the bare branches at first, and then sharing the space with the adorable heart-shaped leaves that emerge as a perfect romantic blending of hearts and flowers. 

Even when the flowers fade, the 5-inch, heart-shaped leaves remain a lovely summer-long addition to an already decorative tree. 

When the summer draws to a close, your Eastern Whitebud changes into its yellow foliage until the leaves drop for winter.  With its leaves gone, the 3-inch seedpods are revealed on the reddish stems for some winter color in the barren landscape.

Your Eastern Whitebud will grow up to 30 feet high with a 35 foot spread.  The branches have a tendency to spread out, giving the overall impression of a gently rounded, or even sometimes flat-topped canopy. 

It’s adaptable to many soil types and conditions, and is generally easy to grow.  As an added benefit, your wildlife will appreciate the fall/winter seedpods, and bees and butterflies will likewise arrive for the spring flowers.

Your Whitebud is a lovely tree that will certainly be an asset to your yard and a friend to your wildlife.  Plant several today and begin enjoying the rare treasure that is the Eastern Whitebud.
