The Forest Pansy Redbud is a spectacular small tree with beautiful colored foliage from spring to fall. The new leaves are purple-red, turning deep purple in summer. In fall they turn red, purple, orange and gold. This tree is a beautiful way to add constant color to your garden, contrasting beautifully with the green leaves of other plants around it. In very early spring the bare branches are covered in beautiful flowers of lilac-pink, making a gorgeous display while the rest of your garden is still sleeping. This beautiful tree is derived from an American native tree, so it is perfect for your natural garden, or for growing in woodlands. It also makes a wonderful lawn specimen that is small enough to be used even in a small garden.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
