Redbud Tree Description

Redbud Tree

Redbud Tree: Cercis Canadensis is a Spectacular Blooming Deciduous.

These trees have gorgeous horizontal branches that are an aesthetically pleasing sight.

These spring beauties are beautiful ornamental trees that everyone falls in love with instantly. The eye-catching magenta clusters of flower buds and rosy pink flowers attract everyone. It is Native to North America and grows in various regions. 

They are not too tall and mature at around 20 to 30 feet in height and above 15 feet in width. It usually occurs as a multi-trunk shrub and increases about 13 to 24 inches taller every year. These trees are among the first ones to blossom, announcing the arrival of early spring. This tree starts flowering at young ages, as soon as four years.

They need full sun with partial shade in their growing years. Not getting an appropriate amount of sun and shade alter their physical appearance. Those growing in the full sun become rounded and compact and are tall and loose when grown in the shade only. However, they can be exposed to full sun after maturing to get more flowers. The crown-like canopy of these gorgeous flowers makes a bold architectural statement. While the flowers of this species are lavender-pink, some varieties also have magenta-pink, rosy pink, or white flowers.

Redbud Tree flowers appear as magenta buds initially and bloom into pretty flowers at the arrival of spring

The flower clusters almost cover the tree's branches, forming a crown and staying for two to three weeks. Unlike other trees, redbuds have heart-shaped leaves, 2 to 6 inches long, reddish or purple foliage when they emerge, and gradually turn into dark green foliage in summer.

They tend to turn yellow in autumn. These trees are not demanding soil, yet well-drained, moist, and rich soil does the best for them. The eastern tree grows well in alkaline, acidic, moist, and loamy soil in multiple climatic conditions. However, full sun (up to 6 hours daily) and a partial shade (4 hours daily) make them propagate best. 

They are low-maintenance plants and do not need frequent watering or pruning. You can prune them as per your preference to adjust the height if required. Young, newly planted trees require one inch of water every seven days. The most appropriate way is to pour water slowly and let it go deep, and gradually add a little

Watering is only as often as two to three days (if there are fewer rainy days in your area). After the first growing season, you can lessen watering and water only once in a while as the plants are tolerant to drought conditions.

People buy redbud trees commercially and add them to their sidewalks or garden to add an aesthetic element. Their fast-growing flowers and changing colors of the leaves make them a favorite among aesthetic plants.

    Redbud tree

    Posted by Cathy Bourdon on Apr 20, 2022

    In all honesty, I have never ordered a bare root tree before. I must say I was a bit disappointed when I received my redbud tree as it just looked like a "stick" with a couple of roots. I planted it in a large nursery pot with good organic soil and placed it in a sunny (most-of-the-day) spot in my yard and waited. I am thrilled to say that this morning when I looked at it there are many new buds coming out of the "stick." I'm sure it will take a few years to see it in all its wonder but I'm happy to say that it is growing. Thank you!

    bare root trees arrived well packaged. The roots were protected and moist. It was the best packaging I’ve received from mail order plants in years.

    The dormant tree arrived in a timely manner. The roots were packed in moist peat moss and in plastic wrapping. We have only had it planted for a few days so we are hoping it will thrive. They are lovely harbingers of early spring!
