Eastern Redbud

Eastern Redbud trees bloom from early spring till fall, with the small redbud flowers adding magenta hues to the scenery. Partnered along with beautiful lush green heart-shaped leaves turn a bright yellow-orange, welcoming the autumn landscape full of vibrant colors. Not only beautiful and stunning for its size, but because it is a native tree it is also drought tolerant and attracts pollinators such as bees and butterflies.
