Eastern Redbud


Item added to cart!

Forest Pansy is a small popular native deciduous tree with multiple trunks and a rounded crown.  The leaves emerge scarlet-purple before maturing to maroon and enjoy a varied fall color of reddish-purple to orange.  The heavy profusion of rosy-pink flowers blooms on bare branches in early spring before the foliage comes in attracting butterflies.  Prefers partial sun and rich well-drained soils with consistent moisture.  Tolerates deer and Black Walnuts.
