The Flame Thrower® Redbud quickly becomes a spreading large shrub, reaching 6 feet within a few years and maturing at 15 feet tall, with a broad, semi-weeping form. It has spectacular heart-shaped leaves that transform from rich burgundy through shades of smoky and buff pinks into glowing golden tones for the summer. Before any leaves appear this is also a striking spring bloomer, smothered in purple-pink blossoms that radiate vibrant color. It blooms in clusters directly on the main branches as well as on young stems. It will become a magnificent lawn specimen, an addition to your shrub beds, or grow it on the sunny side of woodlands.

  • Leaves begin burgundy, and pass through smoky pinks to golden greens
  • Before any leaves appear it is smothered in vibrant purple-pink blooms
  • Perfect shrub to bring color and beauty to your garden
  • Valuable as a lawn specimen, fringing woodlands or in garden beds
  • Fast-growing and dependable

The Flame Thrower® Redbud should be grown in full sun for the best colors on the leaves. It grows best in richer soils that are moist but well-drained, and benefits from regular watering during its early life with you. Once well-established it has good drought tolerance, but benefits from deep watering in summer. It is usually left alone by pests or diseases but it isn’t deer resistant.
