Lavender Twist Redbud

In a state full of crab trees, why not add some variety to your spring landscape? Step apart from your neighbors by planting the Lavender Twist Redbud (Cercis canadensis ‘Covey’). This weeping Eastern Redbud offers year-round interest making it the perfect focal point for any garden. The small tree will only grow 5-6 feet tall and around 6 feet wide. To ensure this gorgeous tree stays weeping, it should be pruned yearly to remove stray branches that decide to grow upward. In early spring, the Lavender Twist will display a waterfall of cascading light pink flowers. The tree will only bloom when planted in full sun and it should be planted in well-draining soils with a consistent moisture content. This ornamental is hardy in zones 5-9 and is overall a very easy plant to grow. However, careful planning should be taken on where to initially plant this tree as it will not transplant well later.
