Lovely lavender-pink blooms that burst onto the early spring garden scene, the brilliant Avondale Redbud Tree (Cercis chinensis 'Avondale') will welcome warmer temperatures with a flourish of tiny pea-shaped blooms that appear almost right on the very branches!
Hardy throughout growing zones 6 through 9, Avondale is more heat tolerant than some other types of Redbud but just as lovely! Bold green heart-shaped leaves arrive with reddish tinges in the spring right after the flowers have finished and adorn your tree all summer.
Redbud Trees foliage turns bright yellow and winter reveals the graceful branching and devils-backbone branching. The way snow sits on the branches all winter paints a beautiful picture! You'll also adore the long thin seed pods that dangle from the branches providing food for birds and winter interest!
These are smaller-sized trees and even can be trained to fit in large planters and balcony plantings! Their modest size and their adaptability make the Avondale Redbud an award-winning tree! Provide pinpoint shade and screening with the' lush leaves, or shade small patches of garden bed while maintaining a trim profile! You'll not need to worry about sacrificing space for this tree.
Avondale Redbuds are bred to be pest and disease-free as well as deer-resistant, so there are few places and climates these trees don't thrive in. Not only beautiful looking throughout the growing season, but these trees are also a boon to early spring pollinators, hummingbirds and later on as songbird food and nesting!
Redbuds do best in full sun in cooler climates and afternoon shade or part sun in warmer zones. They do best in a wide variety of soil types but prefer moist well-drained sites. Provide mulch to insulate and hold in moisture.
