Ruby Fall Redbud is a true dwarf deciduous tree native with multiple trunks and deeply cascading branches that reach the ground.  Papery, semi-glossy heart shaped foliage emerges maroon and matures to dark green before returning to purple for fall.  The heavy profusion of small lavender pink flowers on red stems bloom on bare branches  in early spring attracting butterflies.  Following the flowers are bean-like seed pods that mature in summer and can persist until winter.  Prefers partial sun and rich well-drained soils with consistent moisture.  Tolerates deer and Black Walnuts.

Cercis canadensis is an important host for the Henry's Elfin Butterfly and supports a specialized bee- the Southeast Blueberry Bee.  Its nectar is an early food source for several butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds.  The seedpods are enjoyed by birds and wildlife.
