Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy'


Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy' is commonly known as eastern redbud. This deciduous tree is often multi-trunked and typically grows to 20-30' tall. A spectacular spring bloomer, with very showy pink to purple flowers held tightly on bare branches in early spring with coarse heart-shaped leaves emerging in a deep purple color.

An incredible color accent tree for use in the home landscape. This is a relatively low maintenance tree, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in winter to protect it in exposed locations or colder microclimates. 

The planter should note: Canker can be a significant disease problem. Verticillium wilt, dieback, leaf spots, mildew and blights may also occur.

Light Requirements: Full Sun or Partial Shade

Cold Hardiness Zones: 5 - 9
