Cercis canadensis

Eastern Redbud, Judas Tree

Spring brings a profusion of white, pink or red flower clusters that bloom as the leaves unfold or just before. Red-brown, flat seedpods that follow in summer last through winter. Broad, heart-shaped leaves turn yellow in autumn. Plant as a shrubbery background. Transplant ball and burlapped when small. Prune out deadwood. Water during growing/blooming season. Established plants tolerate dry soil and heat. Prune dead wood and shape after flowering.
