Product Description

Create dramatic contrast in your landscape with this unique purple-leaved redbud, and embrace its deep coloration—so dark, its leaves almost appear black. Striking-colored, heart-shaped leaves have a thick, leathery texture that stands up to disease, and an equally dramatic show of lavender blooms precedes the foliage in early spring. Mature tree can reach 20' tall with a 25' spread, creating a bold privacy screen or garden accent with guaranteed color and personality. Its shade tolerance means you can seat Black Pearl™ anywhere in the landscape, but expect best coloration with more sun. Developed by Ray Jackson of Jackson Nursery. Deciduous. Cercis canadensis 'JN16' PPAF.
