Eastern Redbud Tree or American Redbud Tree

The Eastern Red Bud Tree or Forest Pansy (Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy'), is a small, spreading tree with attractive, heart-shaped purple foilage and gorgeous purple, pink and crimson flowers appearing before the leaves in early Spring. We suggest that this tree is ideally planted in a spot out of harsh winds in a well-drained soil. Expect a final height of 6m, so this tree is ideal for a small garden. For comparison purposes, should be around the 2.5m point at 10 years which is the height most commonly given by nurseries as this is the end of the juvenile period and the only growth that is predictable.

This tree is supplied at a height of between 0.9m and 2.4m in a 5- 15L container for year round planting and better results than from bare-root stock. A gift message card is available. Write what you would like on it when at the checkout in the text box provided.

Eastern Redbud Tree or American Redbud Tree Options
5-7 Litre Option
: Will be in the 0.9 to 1.2m size range.
12 Litre Option: Will be in the 120-200cm range, 2-3 years old
15 Litre Option: Will be in the 1.8 to 2.4 size range and 3-4 years old.

The wide size range comes about because it depends on what time of year you buy them, how the weather has been and how accurate the nurseryman was when it came to pruning time.

Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.

It seems the Forest Pansy is a little elusive when it comes to pinning down the exact common name as it can go by two different ones. Either the American Redbud tree or the Eastern Redbud tree. If you research the tree, the Latin name is exactly the same, the characteristics are exactly the same but the common name can vary.

See What Our Customers Are Saying About Our Eastern Redbud Tree

The tree a bought from you is fantastic. My sister has funded it for a birthday gift, she knew exactly what tree she wanted to buy for me but all the garden centres around her sent the trees they had to Chelsea..So my tree is a belated birthday gift from my sister, I found your web store through RHS site and purchased it. Arrival was perfect timing, son is home from uni and he’s dug the required hole to put it in and has been the general muscle behind planting it in it’s new home...I’ll be using your site again. Thank you Regards Adele Dance 0819

Plants arrived this afternoon and don't look at all bothered by the delay. They look wonderful, I'm really pleased with them. Thank you 0818
Thank you for the amazing tree that was delivered in excellent packaging. It hasn’t arrived damaged and looks in excellent health. I am extremely happy with the specimen you sent me. 0616

Have just taken delivery of the 3 trees (Cercis Forest Pansy being one of them) and I have to say the quality has far exceeded expectations. Thanks for helping me with my queries – the customer support has been refreshingly outstanding. I will definitely be returning next year as we tackle a long fence that is in desperate need for some tree and shrub companions!Darrel F. 0815

Yes thank you. It arrived safely. The courier carried it a long way on his shoulder so we were very impressed! It is now planted, following instructions on the label, and looks great, so fingers crossed it will live happily in its new spot. Thanks Ann Horne 0813

All present and correct, Eastern Redbud tree looks great, good service, great product, thank you, Sue M-N

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.

Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.

UK Grown Ornamental Trees
All our trees are banned from overseas travel so that we can state they are all UK grown. We have removed Internet access from the nursery so they cannot book any flights.

Climate Change
Warm and wet conditions from Climate Change have increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy.
