  • Clear



The Eastern Redbud (Cercis Canadensis)  is considered both a flowering tree and an ornamental tree with growth heights up to 20–30′ and a spread of 25–35′ at maturity. Considered a medium growth rate, with height increases of 13–24″ per year. Blooms in a profusion of rosy pink flowers in April. Begins flowering at a young age, sometimes as early as 4 years. Features somewhat heart-shaped leaves 2–6″ in length. They emerge a reddish color, turning dark green as summer approaches and then yellow in the fall. Makes a bold landscape statement, with its irregular branching and graceful crown. Yields brown to brownish-black pods that are 2–3″ in length, remaining on the tree throughout winter. Grows in a rounded, vase shape. The eastern Redbud grows in acidic, alkaline, loamy, moist, rich, sandy, well-drained and clay soils.

Full sun to partial shade is recommended.
