Cercis canadensis ‘Eastern Redbud’

The Eastern Redbud produces an extremly attractive rosy-pink flower in the spring just before the dark green heart-shaped leaves begin to emerge. The Redbud generally blooms earlier than most plants providing some early spring color. The bark has a smooth gray to black-brown color and the tree, though considered small, can reach up to 30 feet tall and 25-35 feet in width. Cercis canadensis has some drought tolerance when well established and portrays a showy yellow foliage in the fall.
