The Texas Whitebud tree, Cercis canadensis, 'Texas Whitebud', has glossy green foliage.  It is a small, deciduous understory tree which typically grows to 12-18' tall.

Texas Whitebud trees are true harbingers of spring.  Clusters of tiny, milky white, pea-like flowers bloom profusely on the branches and mature trunks for 2-3 weeks in early spring (March-April) before the foliage emerges.  Deciduous heart-shaped leaves open soft pink but gradually mature to a glossy rich green.

Pendulous, flat, bean-like, 2-4" long seed pods resembling snow peas appear after flowering.  Fall color is variable, with foliage that has an unusual yellow cast, but often includes attractive shades of reddish-purple and orange.

They are easily grown in average, medium wet, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade; part shade is best in hot climates

Texas Whitebud tree is an excellent small tree for lawns, woodland gardens or naturalized areas.  It is also effective when planted as a specimen or in groups, or used as a street tree in residential areas.
