Year Round Appeal in a Small Ornamental Tree


Early spring flowers and fall colors are the hallmark of this excellent small tree.  The Forest Pansy Redbud (Cercis canadensis, ‘Forest Pansy’) would make a spectacular spring accent tree near your home’s entrance or along a walkway or patio.


You’ll know spring has arrived when your Redbud explodes into vibrant hues of red-purple.  While much of your landscape still lies dormant, Redbud will be covered for 3-4 weeks with a profusion of flowering clusters on grey branches.  You’ll be amazed by how they seem to emerge directly from the woody bark.  Snip a few of the fragrant blossoms to bring a little of that spring excitement indoors! 


The heart-shaped leaves introduce the next display of color with their reddish-purple shade that gradually blends into a deep green.  Autumn arrives with the same intensity as spring as your Redbud’s leaves transform to a profusion of reds, purples, and yellows.


Forest Pansy is a cultivar of the wildly popular Redbud tree.  This variety has the stellar qualities of the original, but the flowers are a more intensely red-purple hue.  Its growth rate is medium to fast, and its mature height is 20-30 feet.  In no time at all you’ll have a small tree ready to attract hummingbirds and pollinators to your yard.  The spread of the flat to rounded canopy is 25-35 feet, so it won’t take up too much room.  This Redbud doesn’t even require much care, and tolerates many different soil conditions.


For a small accent tree, Forest Pansy Redbud has it all.  Spring, summer and fall color in one easy-to-care for ornamental tree.
