Cercis canadensis is a deciduous flowering tree sold as multi-trunk or standard tree form. Stunning rosy-pink flowers bloom profusely on bare branches in early spring before the new leaves emerge from dormancy. Brown seed pods, 2-4 inch long, mature in the summer and persist into winter. Green heart-shaped leaves turn yellow in autumn. Eastern Redbud is low-maintenance and looks beautiful as a street tree, foundation planting, border, or as an accent plant in a woodland garden.
