Avondale Redbud

Lovely lavender-pink blooms that burst onto the early spring garden scene, the brilliant Avondale Redbud Tree (Cercis chinensis ‘Avondale’) will welcome warmer temperatures with a flourish of tiny pea-shaped blooms that appear almost right on the very branches!

Hardy throughout growing zones 6 through 9, Avondale is more heat tolerant than some other types of Redbud but just as lovely! Bold green heart-shaped leaves arrive with reddish tinges in the spring right after the flowers have finished and adorn your tree all summer.

Redbud Trees foliage turns bright yellow and winter reveals the graceful branching and devils-backbone branching. The way snow sits on the branches all winter paints a beautiful picture! You’ll also adore the long thin seed pods that dangle from the branches providing food for birds and winter interest!
