MN Strain Redbud

  • Spread: 20-25′
  • Shape: Vase-shaped

Sometimes called the Eastern Redbud, the most useful type of redbud in northern gardeners is the ‘Minnesota Strain’, which was developed at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum to survive through our tough winters. Depending on the type of spring we have, Redbuds can bloom as early as mid-April and as late as late May. They are usually one of the first trees to flower in the landscape and the blooms linger for several weeks. Redbuds are not particularly fussy as they can handle full to partial sun (in the wild, it is an understory tree), and can tolerate a variety of soil types. It does not tolerate salt well, so you may want to plant your redbud closer to the house and not near the street where salt spray occurs. It likes well-drained soil of average moisture.
