When in full bloom, this unique redbud will stop traffic!
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.
