1 left in stock
Noted for its dark foliage and excellent tolerance to drought and heat, Cercis canadensis 'Merlot' (Eastern Redbud) is a compact, deciduous tree with an upright, dense, vase-shaped habit. Masses of pea-like, bright pink flowers held in clusters cover the bare branches in the spring, before the foliage emerges, creating a most dramatic display. The cheerful blossoms are on display for 2-3 weeks. The foliage of small, heart-shaped, shiny, wine-red leaves does not show leaf stress in the heat of summer.
A full sun to part shade lover, this Redbud is easily grown in well-drained soils. Performs best in moderately fertile soils with regular and consistent moisture.
