deep apricot-orange to yellow and lime-green in the summer months and then
turns to golden tones for the late summer month, this ornamental tree is
outstanding!  This eastern redbud is very resistant to heat and burn and
does very well in full sun and it will tolerate light shade.  A vigorous
grower this variety is hardy in zones 5-9 and very resistant to pest and
disease, growing up to 12 feet high and about 8 feet wide and makes it a
good tree to use in a focal point in your landscape.  This variety in late
spring produces a pea-type flower, rosy orchid in color and will appear
before the foliage in spring and are attractive to bees and butterflies.  This
tree takes on a full rounded shape at maturity. 4000 plants grown and
propagated by our master gardeners will be available for purchase!
