We Ship Our Bareroot Plants To Everyone Nationwide.
The tree requires full sun or partial shade. The form of the tree is rounded. It is also known as an Eastern redbud because it is grown mainly in the eastern United States
Its gorgeous magenta/purple blooms are what make this tree a favorite. There is very little care required after the initial planting and watering. The tree also has beautiful, heart-shaped, green leaves when the blooms have fallen off. In the fall, the green leaves turn to a yellow color. The tree is gorgeous all year long.
Once the tree has been planted, it will require little care, such as watering, but before long, the tree will have established an excellent root system and begin watering itself. The Soil for the tree to be planted in should be moist.
Plant the tree approximately 12 feet from any other trees. Because the tree has a small, somewhat short trunk, the problem with power lines does not exist. There usually isn't a problem with this. Planting the tree in a partly shady area should also work well for this particular tree.
Homeowners use it for the decoration of their homes. The beauty of the tree and the natural care it requires are two significant features of this type of tree. The trees are usually planted in the fall, but it is now also common to plant them in the spring.
If planted in the fall, the tree will have all winter to get a sound root system established. Redbud can be found in many states within the United States. Mostly it is grown in the eastern United States and extends as far west as Kansas, Texas, and even Okla. This 20' to 30' mature tree has beautiful flowers bloom in early spring.
Found in growing zones 4-9, it will grow in alkaline or acidic soils, including heavy types of clay. These quick growers have an annual rate of 13' up to 24'. Full sun to partial shade tolerance makes this tree very versatile in landscaping.
The spread can be up to 35'. Though drought is tolerant, it does best when mulched to the drip line of the limbs. Pruning is allowed but best done in the late fall after the tree has gone dormant. More buds are present when the trees are located in full sun.
The flower resembles the pea flower of the legume family. The tree's flowers are edible and have a nutty, citrusy flavor that is often used in salads as a garnish. The unopened buds can be pickled and used as a replacement for capers in cooking. Oklahoma adopted the Redbud as its state tree in 1937.
The flower colors range from light to magenta, pink, and white. The foliage of the ornamental ranges from green to a deep purple, which can be used to create a bit of drama when planning your landscaping, depending on the variety.
