General Info

Name story

Eastern redbud
During the spring, it will grow a tree full of red flower buds. Due to its beautiful flower buds, the plant is known as the redbud. Since the western regions of the United States are so dry, the plant cannot survive in the west, and so it was named the Eastern redbud.

Usages

Garden Use
Eastern redbud is found in public parks and home gardens across North America. Its flowers are beloved for their likeness to pink sweet peas, giving this tree a remarkable appearance in the springtime. Eastern redbud can be used to add some lovely cherry-blossom-type hues to your garden and works wondrously as a barrier or standalone piece. Perfect for cottage or traditional gardens, it works well when planted with dogwood trees, witch hazel, and snowberry plants.
