An Ornamental Tree with a Stunning Spring Display
The Royal White Redbud is a small ornamental tree or shrub that puts on a stunning spring display. Plant several as a naturalized border or one near your home’s entrance as an elegant welcome to guests.
Not only is the Royal White a low-maintenance plant, but it blooms earlier and with more and larger flowers than other white Redbuds.
You’ll be amazed by the staggering number of blooms that blanket your Redbud in the spring. Prolific clusters of pristine white, pea-sized flowers seem to encase the bare branches in spectacular color.
In the summer the beauty of your Redbud becomes apparent. Heart shaped leaves emerge with a unique bronze hue, later changing to green.
Your Redbud’s leaves will progress to a lovely blue-green until spicing up your autumn landscape with a lively yellow.
As an added attraction in the fall, your Redbud will gift you area wildlife with a tasty treat inside the 4-inch pea pod-type casings that contain its seed.
Your Redbud will reach a height of 30 feet with a 25 foot spread. It’s a relatively carefree plant and tolerant of a variety of conditions. For a tree that requires little space and care, it provides a large amount of enjoyment.
