The Eastern Redbud Tree is the jewel of spring. It is everywhere in April! Brilliant magenta colored flowers cover the bare twigs and stems for 2-3 weeks before the distinctive heart shaped leaves appear.
It is a versatile small tree which is just as happy in your yard as in the woods. An Eastern Redbud can grow about 20-30 feet tall and wide but it’s more frequently seen at 10-20 feet. It will grow well in full sun or part shade.
