The American Redbud is a beautiful ornamental tree that is simply a must-have for your garden. People will stop in the street when they see this magnificent garden tree in bloom! The pretty heart-shaped foliage will start to grow after the flowers have finished. The tree will show colorful autumn color as well when the leaves turn a bright yellow.
Redbuds are small trees with a short trunk and many branches forming a broad tree when mature. They can reach a height of 20-30 feet.
Cercis canadensis is a tree that occurs naturally in moist valleys and forests. That means they like a moist but not wet soil. They are also not happy in a very dry soil. The trees tolerate a sunny spot if you are in cooler areas. If you live in a hot place plant the tree in the shade of some other trees. They are suitable for Zones 5-9.
I would like to show you particularly nice varieties of this tree that are suitable for small gardens: the Forest Pansy Redbud and the Lavender Twist Redbud Tree.
