    Product Description

    One of the loveliest, most colorful redbuds we've seen. In early to mid-spring, rosy purple flowers open along its stems, creating a spectacular effect. The color show continues when its graceful, heart-shaped leaves emerge. The variegated leaves open to shades of pink, red, white, purple and green. Growing 20-30' tall with a 25-30' spread, this lovely redbud has a beautiful umbrella-like growth habit. It's an ideal choice as a specimen plant—or group with other woodland plants. This new release is the result of work done by Dr. Tom Ranney at North Carolina State University. Cercis canadensis 'Carolina Sweetheart' PPAF.
