Expires on: December 31, 2016

Redbuds are tough native American trees, but this one takes the genus to a new level with its unique weeping and twisting branches cascading toward the ground. All four seasons contribute something special to the garden! In spring, each branch is completely covered with lavender flowers; in summer, large heart-shaped leaves spill down the stems in a rich green waterfall. Autumn foliage is bright yellow, and in winter the gracefully weeping branches add interest to the landscape. It grows to 5-6' tall and 6-8' wide, great for a limited space, but you can stake a leader branch and train it to the height you want. Requires little maintenance, though it needs water the first year while establishing its roots. Zones 5-9. 3' Bareroot. Cercis canadensis 'Covey' PP10328. Full Sun to Partial Shade.

Lavender Twist Weeping Redbud Review by Linda Hart - Circleville, OH
Posted on 2015-05-27

I have never wanted or bought a tree before but when I saw the pics I had to have one! Received mine on 4/18/15 as a 3 ft. stick with roots. I wish I could add a pic of my tree I took on 5/18/15. It has a dozen branches and lots of green and red leaves! The branches are starting to turn downward and there are at least another 20 buds ready to be more branches! I can't hardly wait to see what it will look like a year from now. It is so exciting to see the changes every day. Thank you Spring Hill for the care you give your plants and the care you take in packing them to arrive safely. Would like to see you add a photo upload so we can share our lovely plants with others who may be considering purchasing the same item. Pictures speak louder than words! :)

We have had our Lavender Twist for only three years. It is absolutely beautiful. In fact for our 48th anniversary we are buying another.

My 5 year old tree Review by jayne strahm - springboro, OH
Posted on 2014-08-10

I planted my tree in the South East corner of my home. It is three feet from my home and I trained it by staking the branches that were touching the ground. Now it is about five feet tall and ten feet wide which has made it an eye stopper. Had a party the other night and several guests commented on the tree. One comment was "Oh my that is one of the most unusual trees that I have see. It must have cost you a fortune." It loves its' location since it is protected from the northwest winds that we experience in Ohio. I have large stones under the tree so that the leaves do not touch the mulch. This is what keeps the leaves protected from diseases that might attack the tree. I forget what I paid for the tree but according to my guest it would cost as much as 800.00 to replace. I can't wait to see it in the Spring. Also the seed pods are a favorite among the doves.

Lavender Twisting Redbud Review by Joan - " Blandford,", MA
Posted on 2013-01-26

I recieved this last spring. A few little branches. I planted it in a 2x2 ft. built into my deck which is about 2 ft off the ground. It is boxed in with PT lumber. It is even with the surface of my deck. It got TLC and immediately started to grow. It was a good specimen. It does not yet look anything like the picture. It needs to fill out and branch out. I can't wait to see if it blooms this spring. I am going to get the Ruby Falls weeping Redbud this spring and plant it in the other in deck planter box. I love spring Hill. I've spent a fortune with this company with a couple of acres of lawn and at least 13 huge flower beds. I've had disappointments when something dies but they stand by their nursery and that is amazing. Love you Spring Hill.

Lavender Twist Weeping Redbud Review by Debbie Sandlin - Wilmington, OH

"It's a beautiful day here for March 22, so the grandkids and I were playing with bubbles in the yard. My 19 month old granddaughter chasing bubbles run into my Lavender Twist tree, and I couldn't believe it I heard a snap, turned around and my tree was laying on the ground. I could have cried, it already had leaves coming out on it. So I called to ask if it would come back up? The lady said NO! But we will send you another one free of charge. That made me so happy..that's the kind of company I like to do business with. Thank You from the bottom of my heart!!!!! Can't wait to see it flowering!!!"

Looks beautiful Review by Victoria - Middletown, NJ

"Came in mid spring as a bare stalk but after a few days buds, then leaves began to show. It is now July and full of branches and big leaves. I believe next year I will see the blooms in the photo that made me buy it in the first place! Like all plantings its a work in progress."

Awesome! Review by Carmela - West Chester, PA

"Arrived as a 3' bareroot tree, well-packed in it's own bag and box. We left it in our cool, dark basement for five days because we couldn't plant it right away, but when we finally did plant it, it took off! Sprouted leaves from each and every crook in it's stem/trunk within two weeks of planting. Can't wait to see it at the height of the summer! I would definitely recommend this to others, and I will buy another one next season!"

Lavender Twist Weeping Redbud trees add dreamy charm to gardenscapes, and their eye-catching umbrella-shapes make these flowering trees perennial favorites of online nurseries. Also known as Cercis canadensis Covey, these redbuds develop long, twisting branches that tip toward the ground. Each weeping tree sprouts reddish-purple buds that open to rosy lavender-pink blooms.

Plant the colorful Lavender Twist Weeping Redbud tree in your front or back yard for an enchanting centerpiece that offers cascades of gently arching branches covered with bright blooms. These Cercis canadensis Covey trees embody romance with their umbrella-shaped habits that seem to reach for the ground and their lovely lavender-pink flowers encased by heart-shaped leaves. This stunning weeping tree variety produces reddish-purple buds that mature into pink, pea-like flowers each spring. A favorite of online nurseries, Lavender Twist Weeping Redbuds thrive in partially shady or sunlit areas across four hardiness zones, and these pendulous but compact trees require only minor pruning in late winter or early spring.
