The Bubble Gum Redbud is a plant that just can’t stop blooming – it has an incredibly heavy flower display even when young, right on the stems and branches. The bright pink blooms lack the purple tones usually seen in redbuds, and they glow even brighter because of that. The dark-green leaves are exceptionally attractive – heart-shaped with a glossy surface. Fall colors are gold and orange and the winter profile of the twisting branches is very beautiful. At 15 feet tall it is a perfect specimen tree for smaller gardens, and it looks great on banks and near large trees.

  • Very heavy blooming variety, even on young plants
  • True pink blooms glow out in early spring
  • Attractive glossy leaves are dark green
  • Fall colors of golden yellow and orange
  • The top choice for warmer, drier parts of the country

Planted in full sun, in well-drained soil, the Bubble Gum Redbud will perform perfectly for you. It grows best in warmer zones, including areas with long hot summers where the eastern redbud grows poorly. It is drought resistant when established, untroubled by pests or diseases, and ignored by deer. Prune as needed as soon as the flowers have faded.
