Ruby Falls Redbud (Cercis canadensis) is an exciting and beautiful "waterfall" shaped tree! This deciduous plant's branches overflow with beauty and interest, making it the perfect plant for your garden or yard all year-long.
A petite tree, the branches sprout outward and downward from its center. Its weeping canopy creates a dramatic display.
When spring arrives, your Ruby Falls Redbud will celebrate with lavender clusters of showy blooms. Its elegant appearance makes it look like it is wearing a dance costume, comprised entirely of pristine flowers!
And after wearing a plethora of pink flowers, the Ruby Falls Redbud knows it's time for a costume change. Within weeks of blooming, it sports glossy, burgundy, heart-shaped leaves. And soon it will dazzle your garden spectators again when its leaves transform to a rich green with reddish overtones.
What about when winter arrives, and the Ruby Falls Redbud's leaves fall away? Well, if you're a fan of Weeping Willows, then this mini-tree will offer the same drama of pendulous branches that can be admired leaf-free all winter long.
The only question you should have, now, is "where should I plant my Ruby Falls Redbud?" Well, we have some suggestions, but make sure you place it where it can be fully admired in its full glory. Try planting one as a specimen in your front yard or as an accent plant at the edge of your garden. It would even look amazing nearby your garden bench or birdbath.
No matter where you plant it, you won't be the only one enamored with its beauty. Aside from your neighbors, you'll also find butterflies love to visit it.
To keep them as happy as possible, plant your Ruby Falls Redbud in full sun where it will produce the most flowers. It will also do well in partial shade. Just make sure you find a spot with well-drained soil, and water it regularly when it's becoming established.
