Eastern Redbud tree is a very handsome, small
tree with gracefully ascending branches and reaches
20 to 30 feet. Perfect reddish purple flowers
open to a rosy-pink in April. The flowers are
produced all along the branches and even from
the trunk. After the tree blooms the pretty heart-shaped
trees are very adaptable. You will see them growing
anywhere from along interstate highways in full
blazing sun to under the canopies of tall, large
trees in woodland areas. They will tolerate both
damp or dry soils.
trees are great as a single specimen, in a group,
in a shrub border, and especially nice in woodland
and naturalized type landscapes. Sometimes the
bloom season coincides with that of dogwoods making
for a spectacular spring show.
