Redbud

Cercis selections

One of the first trees to flower in spring, redbud is eye candy in every season. Necklaces of tiny flowers garland the bare branches in spring. The open, rounded tree canopy provides shade in summer. In fall, the heart-shape leaves turn gold and orange, creating multicolored puddles as they drop. The long, beanlike seedpods persist through the winter. Redbuds thrive in moist soil, especially when young, but will tolerate a variety of soils and drier conditions once established. If you treat your lawn with herbicides, avoid growing a redbud as a lawn tree. Weeping, white-flowered, and purple-leaf redbuds are available for special effects.
