American Redbud or Eastern Redbud and sometimes referred to as the Judas tree as it dates back to biblical times.
Very handsome, small tree with gracefully ascending branches, reaches 20 to 30 feet. Perfect reddish purple flowers open to a rosy-pink, March-April. Emerging heart-shaped reddish purple leaves turn green, then yellow-green in fall. Origin: New Jersey to Florida, west to Missouri and Texas and northern Mexico.
Great as a single specimen, in a group, in a shrub border, and especially nice in woodland and naturalized type landscapes.
2 Gallon size trees are 3 yr. old . Fast growing up until about 12′, then growth slows somewhat. Excellent for use under canopy of large trees and should have afternoon shade in southern zones.
