Oklahoma Redbud Tree
Small Ornamental Tree with Seasonal Interest
The Oklahoma Redbud, Cercis reniformis 'Oklahoma', is a beautiful small tree that performs for you throughout the year. It would look lovely in a formal setting by your patio or walkway, or plant several in a natural group for a natural, informal look.
This is an an excellent small, native tree that has been improved by careful breeding. It handles the heat in style, with color that stands up to high temperatures. Drought tolerant, this is an easy care tree for use as a lovely accent in front yard landscapes, or in a back yard as a special focal point.
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 will put on quite a show in spring.
Watch as tiny pink/red blooms seem to overpower the branches, covering them in radiant floral beauty. Dark green and intensely shiny, the glossy heart-shaped leaves develop into a rounded, irregular crown.
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.
