Cercis canadensis ‘Ruby Falls’® Red Bud

Description: Cercis 'Ruby Falls' is a graceful new introduction of weeping habit. The heart-shaped leaves appear rich purple, very similar to 'Forest Pansy'. Clusters of bright pink pea-like flowers open just before the foliage in spring followed by flattened, deep purple pods. Perfect for small gardens!

Cercis Growing Tips: Performs best in moderately fertile well drained soils. The best flower production occurs in full sun but part shade is best in hot summer climates.
