The Cotton Candy™ Redbud is a gorgeous new variety of the eastern redbud, a native tree and one of the very first trees to bloom in spring. The dark-brown stems and branches are covered in a profusion of pastel-pink blooms before the leaves emerge, in one of the highlights of spring. The heart-shaped leaves that follow are very attractive, with prominent veins, and they hang vertically from the branches. In fall the leaves turn glowing yellow, and dark brown seed pods decorate the branches in fall and early winter. The winter silhouette is very beautiful. Grow this tree as a lawn specimen or along the edges of woodlands. Plant it in the background of large shrub beds, or on slopes and in semi-natural settings.

  • Gorgeous early spring display of baby-pink blossoms
  • Graceful heart-shaped foliage is golden yellow in fall
  • Very dark brown bark and attractive winter silhouette
  • Grows easily in most soils
  • Trouble-free and low-maintenance

The very adaptable and easily grown Cotton Candy™ Redbud thrives in full sun or partial shade. It will grow in most soils, including poor ones, both acid and alkaline, if they are well-drained and not too dry. This tree has no pests or diseases and no pruning is needed or desirable, after some possible shaping during its first few years. A very adaptable and easy tree that will grow in almost all gardens with ease.
