"Forest Pansy" Eastern Redbud Trees
Cercis canadensis ‘Forest Pansy’
- Full Sun or Partial Shade
- Moderate to Regular Water
Valued for its flowers, fruit, and foliage. Native to the eastern US (to 25 – 35 ft. tall and wide) and fastest growing of the redbuds, and the most apt to take tree form. Its broad circular leaves are deep purple in color and provide excellent contrast for its bright pink flowers. Do any pruning in dormant season or after bloom. Needs good drainage. Purple leaves turn to green in late summer.
