    Botanical Name: Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy'

    Forest Pansy is a beautiful landscape tree with stunning rosy-pink flowers in early spring. Heart-shaped foliage offers varying shades of color throughout the season.

    The Eastern Redbud is a favorite ornamental tree and for good reason. The beautiful mauve-pink blooms arrive in early spring, adding brilliant color and attracting pollinators to your landscape. The leaves are heart-shaped in varying colors of greens to burgundy and often turning yellow in the fall. Available as a single trunk, but in general, the form is vase shaped with multiple-trunks, adding to the sculptural form of this gorgeous tree.
