Redbud Cercis canadensis OR Cercis reniformis
The Redbud will grow in full sun or dappled shade. A small deciduous tree 20 foot by 10 foot when mature will bloom during spring in shades of purple, pink, or white, followed by seed pods. The Oklahoma cultivar (Cercis reniformis) performs better than the Texas cultivar (Cercis canadensis). Most nurseries keep in stock a proven variety, Cercis canadensis commercially called Forest Pansy Redbud.
