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.
