Cercis canadensis 'Ace of Hearts'

Ace of Hearts Redbud has an abundance of pink-purple flowers covering its bare branches before the compact, very small heart shaped leaves appear. The leaves are symmetrically arranged on the branches as if "stacked" on top of each other (as seen from above). Very unique! Very nice compact variety.

Cercis canadensis 'Alba'

A white Redbud selection with pure white blooms on its bare stems. The leaves come out bronze turning green with age.

Cercis canadensis

Eastern Redbud has a divided trunk which gives this small tree a rounded, somewhat flat-topped crown. The heart-shaped leaves can be up to 10cm across with prominent veins. New growth flushes reddish-purple giving way to green during summer and rich yellow in the fall. Deep rose flower clusters on older wood break before the leaves unfold.

Cercis canadensis 'Appalachian Red'

Appalachian Red Redbud has true red buds opening to fuchsia-red blooms later in the season than other redbuds. The only red bloomer!

Cercis canadensis 'Floating Clouds'

Floating Clouds Redbud gets its name from the amazing variegated foliage which is mostly white with a green mottling. Magenta flowers appear before the leaves.

Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy'

Forest Pansy Redbud blooms with rose-purple, flat-topped flowers before the deep purple(wine)-red leaves unfold. The heart-shaped leaves mature to a rich bronze-purple to green-purple (top of leaf green, bottom purple). The tree has a tendency to be be multi-stemmed and has an irregular growth habit before maturing into a flat-topped vase-shaped tree.

Cercis canadensis 'High Country Gold'

High Country Gold Redbud has pink flowers a shade lighter than the species. New leaves emerge yellow with a hint of red maturing to pure yellow.

Cercis canadensis 'Hearts of Gold'

Hearts of Gold Redbud has great orange-yellow to golden yellow new growth. Mature leaves change to a lime green colour contrasting nicely with the new leaves and showing a succession of different yellow hues( to green) from the tip inwards.

Cercis canadensis 'Lavender Twist'

Covey Redbud is a great small tree with all-season interest. Slightly zigzag branches arch and weep gracefully providing the perfect structure for magenta buds opening to pale-pink (lavender) flowers in spring. New leaves emerge bronzy-purple, changing to dark green and turning yellow in fall, covering and overlapping like shingles to reveal its very interesting structure once again in winter. An amazing Redbud discovery from Westfield, New York!

Cercis canadensis 'Little Woody'

Little Woody is a dwarf Redbud selection with small, crinkled leaves that when seen from above, are stacked on top of each others like the steps on a staircase. Very unique! Blooms heavily on bare branches with clusters of mauve flowers.

Cercis canadensis 'Mardi Grass'

Mardi Grass is a new Redbud selection with a small shrubby form. Purple/deep rose flowers (as species) on bare wood. New growth emerges almost white with pink and does not burn.

Cercis canadensis 'Pink Heartbreaker'

Pink Heartbreaker Redbud is an exceptional weeping form with leaves slightly smaller than the species, emerging red and maturing to green. Very strong branches. A great new weeper!

Cercis canadensis 'Pauline Lily'

Pauline Lily Redbud has salmon coloured buds opening to a blushed white flower (pale-pink) - very unusual! Large heart-shaped leaves.

Cercis canadensis 'Ruby Falls'

Ruby Falls is an Eastern Redbud cross between Forest Pansy and Covey resulting in an exceptional, compact (dwarf) weeper with purple foliage! Lavender flowers appear on bright red stems before the foliage unfolds revealing the deep purple hearts... (leaves will green up in the heat of summer and under low light conditions) Staked to height it will be a gem in the small garden!

Cercis canadensis 'Royal White'

Royal White Redbud flowers with an abundance of large, white flowers (larger than the other white cultivar Alba). Very floriferous!

Cercis canadensis 'Silver Cloud'

Silver Cloud Redbud has an unusual variegation pattern with lines and dots; creamy-white and green, sometimes tinged with pink. Rosy-pink flowers on this distinct, smaller variegated selection !

Cercis canadensis 'The Rising Sun'

The Rising Sun Redbud's colours are just like those of the rising sun! Rosy-purple flowers appear on bare wood. New growth emerges in striking shades of gold, orange and peach with a hint of red. Leaves mature yellow to light green eventually becoming green creating a stunning arrangement of all of the above colours on the tree at the same time! Fall colour is orange.
