A favorite for bright spring color
Cercis (Redbud) is a moderate-to-rapidly growing tree that can reach a height of 20-30 feet, depending on the variety. Offering an array of sizes, shapes, and colors, including upright and weeping habits, with foliage in a range of purples and greens, Cercis make an excellent street tree or specimen planting. Tolerant of urban pollution and heat and humidity, Cercis burst forth in spring with pink, lavender, fuschia, or white butterfly-attracting blooms. Add this easy tree to a sunny or lightly shaded area and enjoy a stunning flower show, year after year!
