Most redbuds have purple-pink buds, but the Appalachian Red Redbud (Cercis canadensis ‘Appalachian Red’) stays more true to its name with its blooms that appear to be pretty red with a tint of pink.

This redbud is quite the looker with its single stem base and springtime pea-like blooms that radiant across your landscaping eliminating any room for dullness.

Throughout the summer season the tree takes on the coloration of dark blue-green, heart-shaped foliage, but eventually fades into a yellow coloration as the chilly fall weather approaches.

Appalachian Red Redbud has such a dramatic variety of colors that look absolutely stunning against a white background, such as a white picket fence, garage, or barn.

Ornamental trees are pretty common, but this one outperforms the rest with the endless elegance that radiates throughout each season.

Planting near your favorite relaxing spot in your backyard will give you quite the view when enjoying your peace and quiet time – even the pollinators will appreciate this beauty.

Your Appalachian Red Redbud will light your whole landscaping up day in and day out, so the least you could do is give your tree its proper care and attention of well-drained soil and full to partial shade.
