The Appalachian Redbud is a beautiful selected form of the native eastern redbud. It has brilliant fuchsia-red flowers instead of the lilac-pink flowers of the wild tree. This fast-growing plant develops into a spreading small tree or large shrub, between 10 and 25 feet tall and wide. The flowers grow in clusters directly from the dark-gray trunk and branches, in very early spring, before the leaves appear. A tree in bloom is a gorgeous sight, and it will beautify your spring garden like nothing else can. This tree grows from zone 4 into zone 8 or 9, and it thrives in areas with good rainfall. In drier states choose the Western Redbud instead.

  • Magnificent small tree flowering in very early spring
  • Flowers are a gorgeous fuchsia-red color, on bare branches
  • Grows well in full sun or partial shade
  • Native tree, so ideal for natural gardens
  • Easy to grow, and deer resistant

Grow your Appalachian Redbud in full sun, or partial shade in hotter states. Plant in rich, moist, well-drained soil, and water during dry periods. Mulch with rich compost and encourage good growth with fertilizer and watering. This tree is generally free of pests, and deer usually ignore it. It will even grow underneath a black walnut tree where many other plants fail. No pruning is needed, and this tree is low-maintenance but glorious to see in bloom.
