The Burgundy Hearts Redbud is a remarkable variety of eastern redbud that has pronounced heart-shaped leaves that are rich burgundy in spring. They turn dark green as they mature, but new leaves continue to be burgundy, a unique feature not seen in other redbuds with red leaves. In early spring the bare branches are smothered in brilliant fuchsia-pink flowers, making a striking impact in the still-dormant garden. Reaching a height of about 20 feet, and spreading widely to 25 feet, this multi-stem deciduous tree is a top-pick for the back of shrub beds, as a specimen tree, planted by water, or growing in woodland settings.

  • Spectacular fuchsia-pink blooms on bare branches in early spring
  • Wonderful burgundy spring leaves
  • Uniquely, new leaves continue to be burgundy all summer
  • Beautiful spreading tree for specimens or woodlands
  • Top choice for cooler states

Plant the Burgundy Hearts Redbud in full sun or partial shade, in rich, moist, well-drained soil. Once established it has some drought resistance, but regular watering, mulch and fertilizer will give the best results, and keep it pest and disease free. No pruning is needed, but some formative pruning when young will help it develop its best form and appearance. Remove any dead branches promptly. It is normally ignored by deer and it will grow near a black walnut tree, notorious for poisoning the ground for many other plants.
