Cercis canadensis

Red Bud

  • Native
  • Attracts butterflies and birds
  • Big, heart-shaped leaves
  • Dense, rounded form
  • Great specimen
  • Easy to grow
  • Reddish-pink flower show late April
You may love the one of a kind flower color this native brings to the landscape but birds and butterflies appreciate it for other reasons just as ardently. Redbud's big, heart shaped leaves and dense, rounded form are perfect for providing shelter and nesting area for many of our area's birds while its foliage provides caterpillar food for some our areas most sought after butterflies. Those are great reasons to grow this specimen but you might just like if for the incredible late April, reddish-purple show of flowers that it provides and the easy grow nature that will make this plant a landscape fixture. See pages 12 & 13 for more details on the American Beauties program.
