Early spring flowers and fall colors are the hallmark of this excellent small tree. The Forest Pansy Redbud (Cercis canadensis, 'Forest Pansy') would make a spectacular spring accent tree near your home's entrance or along a walkway or patio.
You'll know spring has arrived when your Redbud explodes into vibrant hues of red-purple. While much of your landscape still lies dormant, Redbud will be covered for 3-4 weeks with a profusion of flowering clusters on grey branches. You'll be amazed by how they seem to emerge directly from the woody bark.
The heart-shaped leaves introduce the next display of color with their reddish-purple shade that gradually blends into a deep green. Autumn arrives with the same intensity as spring as your Redbud's leaves transform to a profusion of reds, purples, and yellows.
Forest Pansy is a cultivar of the wildly popular Redbud tree. This variety has the stellar qualities of the original, but the flowers are a more intensely red-purple hue. In no time at all you'll have a small tree ready to attract hummingbirds and pollinators to your yard.
This Redbud doesn't even require much care and tolerates many different soil conditions.
For a small accent tree, Forest Pansy Redbud has it all. Spring, summer and fall color in one easy-to-care for ornamental tree.
