Small Ornamental Tree with Seasonal Interest

The Oklahoma Redbud, Cercis reniformis 'Oklahoma', is a small deciduous tree with seasonal interest.  It would look lovely in a formal setting by your patio or walkway, or scatter a few about the lawn for a more naturalized effect.
 
Redbuds are highly prized for the amount of color they produce in the spring and fall. Small enough to grow in a variety of locations in your yard, the Oklahoma Redbud is an excellent understory plant growing 15-25 feet tall with a 15-20 foot spread. 
 
When spring arrives, your Oklahoma Redbud tree will put on quite a show.  Watch as tiny pink/red blooms seem to overpower the branches, covering them in radiant floral beauty.  Dark green and intensely shiny, the heart-shaped leaves emerge soon after.  The leaves leaf out into a rounded, irregular crown that is the Redbud’s summer glory. 

Adding to that glory in your yard, 3-inch seedpods will soon appear. The pods will remain a lovely lavender color through the summer and into the winter months. When autumn arrives, your Redbud will treat you to a variety of hues ranging from reds and purples to shades of orange.
 
Oklahoma Redbud flowers and seeds are reportedly edible, with the flowers having a somewhat nutty flavor. Various parts of the tree have been used medicinally in the past as well. Of course if you’re not inclined to use the Redbud seeds, your backyard birds will certainly take care of them for you.
 
The Oklahoma Redbud takes up very little room, but offers you so much in return. Plant one today and enjoy their rare and interesting beauty.
