Eastern Redbud

Scientific Name: Cercis canadensis

The Eastern Redbud is a staple flowering tree, known for its unique, heart-shaped leaves, hanging brown seed pods, and bright pink spring flowers. This small native tree is easily recognizable, and well-loved throughout the eastern United States. Redbuds have been used for many purposes throughout history with Native Americans: using the bark as an astringent to treat dysentery, as a tea to treat whooping cough, and using roots and inner bark for fevers, congestion, and vomiting. This tree attracts various pollinators with its showy flowers, but don’t let them have all the fun. Redbud flowers, that bud in April or May, are also edible to humans. Try adding them to a salad for color and a refreshing, tart flavor! Grows to 20-30 feet tall and 25-35 feet wide. Light requirements: Full Sun-Part Shade. Great as a specimen tree to feature in your yard.
