‘Appalachian’ Red Redbud -
Cercis canadensis ‘Appalachian Red"
Grows 25’ tall and wide
Like all redbuds, ‘Appalachian’ is an understory tree and can tolerate partial shade. In early spring the tight deep pink buds cover the branches of this cold hardy tree, and in mid-spring the buds open into blooms. This flower explosion occurs before any of the burgundy-colored, young foliage appears. The large heart-shaped leaves change to a deep blue-green by summer, and a sunny yellow in the fall.
Come to Garden Day this Saturday and learn about this and other new varieties! Victoria will be giving a lecture with a slide show "New Varieties in Bloom." Every year there are new varieties destined to become old favorites. Let Victoria introduce you to the stunning new "must have" varieties available to brighten your garden this season. The class will include annuals, perennials shrubs and trees.
