Description

The Redbud tree is a stunning addition to any garden, growing up to 30ft tall in zones 4-9. Grown naturally, it produces beautiful pink and purple flowers in early spring, even on the trunk!

Redbud Tree

The redbud tree (Cercis canadensis) is a native North American tree that is known for its beautiful, heart-shaped leaves and early spring blooms. Redbud trees can grow up to 30 feet tall and 20 feet wide, and they have a lifespan of 50-75 years.

Redbud Tree

Redbud trees are relatively low-maintenance trees, but they do have a few specific requirements. Redbud trees prefer full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. They are also drought-tolerant once established.

To plant a redbud tree, choose a location that receives at least 6 hours of sunlight per day. Dig a hole that is twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Place the tree in the hole and backfill with soil, tamping down gently to remove any air pockets. Water the tree thoroughly.

Water your redbud tree regularly, especially during the first growing season. Fertilize in the spring with a balanced fertilizer. Prune redbud trees in the late winter or early spring to remove dead or diseased wood and to shape the tree.

Redbud trees are typically ready to bloom in early spring, before the leaves emerge. The blooms are typically pink or purple in color and last for about 2 weeks. After the blooms fade, the heart-shaped leaves emerge. Redbud trees also produce small, pea-like pods in the fall.

Redbud trees are a beautiful and versatile addition to any landscape. They can be planted as a single specimen tree, used in a hedge or screen, or added to a mixed border. Redbud trees are also popular in bonsai.

Here are some tips for growing and caring for redbud trees:

  • Plant in full sun to partial shade in well-drained soil.
  • Water regularly, especially during the first growing season.
  • Fertilize in the spring with a balanced fertilizer.
  • Prune in the late winter or early spring to remove dead or diseased wood and to shape the tree.
  • Redbud trees are generally pest- and disease-resistant, but it is important to inspect the tree regularly for any signs of problems.

With proper care, redbud trees will provide you with many years of enjoyment.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.

We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.

Note
Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
