The Black Pearl™ Redbud is a large deciduous shrub that grows rapidly, reaching over 6 feet within 5 years and becoming a broad shrub or small tree 20 feet tall and 25 feet wide. It has leaves that are black-purple in spring, turning dark purple-red as they mature, and holding that dark color all through summer, without fading. In fall the leaves turn yellow flushed with orange. In spring the bare branches are smothered in a profuse and vibrant display of lavender-purple blooms that glow across the landscape. Plant as a specimen on a large lawn, at the back of shrub beds, or edging woodland.

  • Near-black purple leaves in spring and summer
  • Most reliable variety for summer color
  • Fall leaves are yellow-chartreuse, flushed with orange
  • Spectacular lavender-purple spring flowers on bare stems
  • Beautiful large, spreading shrub that is easy to grow

The Black Pearl™ Redbud will develop the darkest leaf colors when grown in full sun, but it also grows well in partial shade. It grows in most soils, from acid to alkaline and sand to clay, as long as it is well-drained and not constantly wet. Once established this plant has good drought tolerance, but does best with a regular supply of water. Pests and diseases are rare, but protect young plants from rabbits and deer. No pruning is needed or desirable.
