Redbud Tree

Native Ornamental Ideal for Smaller Spaces

One of the first flowering trees of spring! In early to mid-spring, rosy-purple flowers cover the redbud tree before giving way to medium green, heart-shaped foliage. Growing 20-30 ft. tall with a 25-30 spread, the redbud has an upright, spreading, umbrella-like habit. This deciduous tree is an ideal choice for a specimen plant in small gardens or areas around terraces and patios. It's also a favorite along woodland margins or in naturalized areas. For a truly spectacular look, plant redbuds in small groups. Native to the eastern United States, the redbud tree grows best in full sun to partial shade. Zones 4-9.

NOTE: We are unable to ship our trees to PO Boxes at this time.
