American redbud

RHS award of garden merit £59.99
Pot size 3 litre pot (0.8-1m)
3 litre pot (0.8-1m)
  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: slow-growing
  • Flowering period: March to April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A compact, weeping form, with heart-shaped leaves that emerge red, but mature in summer to a deep burgundy. Its great for adding a splash of colour a smaller garden, while the purple flowers that clothe the bare stems in early spring (just before the new leaves emerge) add another season of interest. A beautiful specimen plant for both borders or large pots.

  • Garden care: Plant in their final location when young as they resent being transplanted. Requires minimal pruning. Remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches in late autumn or winter. When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly.
