The Lavender Twist® Redbud is a remarkable small tree with cascading branches growing from a central trunk. It reaches about 6 feet tall, and spreads into a wide, arching umbrella form. In early spring the bare branches are smothered in dense clusters of purple-pink blooms, and the heart-shaped leaves are tinted red at first, turning a unique blue-green for summer, and yellow in fall. Grow this beautiful plant as a lawn specimen, among shrubs, in your oriental-style garden, in woods or in a large pot. Wherever you grow it you will love it.

  • Glorious cascade of purple-pink flowers in spring
  • Graceful weeping shrub around 6 feet tall
  • Blue-green heart-shaped leaves turn yellow in fall
  • Only weeping form hardy in the North
  • Easily grown and free of pests

The Lavender Twist® Redbud is the only weeping redbud in existence that will grow in the North. It is hardy in much of zone 4 and in all warmer zones as well. It grows best in full sun, with some afternoon shade in hot areas. Moist, well-drained soil is best, and it has moderate tolerance of drought and heat. Pests and diseases don’t bother it, and deer leave it alone. No special pruning or training is needed to maintain its beautiful weeping form.
