Electric Spring Color Eastern Redbud Tree

  • Early and Showy Bloomer
  • Disease Resistant
  • Low Maintenance
  • Native Selection

Herald the arrival of spring in a colorful way when you plant the Eastern Redbud (Cercis canadensis) in your yard. This tree is all about stealing the show – and in a big way, with its electric lavender-pink blossoms that burst into life each year when springtime rolls around.

The flowers emerge straight out of the branches before the leaves come out. It's a delightful presentation that is nothing short of stunning. Blooms of varying shades of pink pop out well before the leaves do, giving your lawn a "decorator touch" that will be the envy of all that pass by.

When the leaves finally burst forth, they are perfectly heart-shaped and a lovely light green hue that contrasts ever so nicely against the tree's bark. One look at this tree in its full spring glory will bring a smile to your face and provide visual enjoyment for the whole season.

Growers always remark on this tree's ease of growth. Being native to the Americas and found naturally from Texas to the Great Lakes, the Eastern Redbud has super soil adaptability, thriving in nearly any condition and growing up to 2 feet each year.

In the fall, the leaves turn a soft golden yellow to add beauty to your fall landscape, and when they finally drop off, the tree keeps an interesting texture during the winter.

If you are looking for a low-maintenance, knockout flowering tree, this is it. Buy a few before they sell out this year. They are a great bargain and will return their price in beauty many times over. Order yours now!
