Redbud - Cercis Canadensis is a Spectacular Blooming Deciduous
Redbud's spectacular purple flowers every spring are awesome. One of the first trees to flower in the early spring, it is relatively trouble-free and with lovely foliage that turns a golden shade in fall.
A large shrub or small tree, it will grow to around 20 feet tall and as much across. Fast growing, it soon develops into a lovely specimen that will awe you in the spring with stunning pea-like rose-purple flowers which bloom profusely on bare branches before the appearance of leaves. Flowers are followed by flattened bean-like seedpods that mature in summer.
Leaves are a heart-shaped roundish form. They also are bronzy before they unfurl to a bright green to the transference of yellow color in the fall. However, the shade of yellow during the fall weather is inconsistent.
Redbud Trees Grow in Well Drained Soils in Full Sun to Partial Shade
Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Redbuds can be used in different landscape settings.
Ideal for tight places or small lots, they look great in groups, make beautiful lawn trees, placed in borders, or in foundation plantings.
To shape future growth, prune redbud trees while they’re young. This strengthens the connections of the main leaders to the trunk. Pruning helps form U-shaped junctions so the primary limbs can support leaves and flowers. Prune the tree in early summer after the tree is done blooming.
This 20' to 30' matured tree has beautiful flowers that 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 as to location in landscaping. The spread can be up to 35'. Though drought tolerant, they do 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 located in full sun. The flower resembles the pea flower of the legume family. Redbud flowers are edible, have a nutty, citrusy flavor that 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 their state tree in 1937. The flower colors can range from light to magenta pink, and white. The foliage of the ornamental ranges from green to a deep purple, that can be used to create a bit of drama when planning your landscaping, depending on the variety.
