Cercis (Redbud)

A richly hued redbud for brightening up your garden haven

Redbud trees offer an array of landscaping possibilities with varieties ranging from graceful weeping habits to more upright habits reaching 20 to 30 feet that are ideal as a street tree or a focal specimen. Redbuds not only vary in shape, size and form but also offer foliage colors in greens and purples. Redbuds have a moderate to rapid growth pattern and tolerate urban pollution, heat and humidity in stride. One of redbuds' most striking features is its burst of color in spring. Blooms of sweet pink, lavender, fuchsia or white attract butterflies and admirers. Enjoy this small deciduous tree every year in a sunny to lightly shaded area.
