The bright purple blossoms of the Eastern Redbud Tree arrive in early spring, just before the first leaves sprout. These flashy blooms pop out of the branches like flourescent lights and wrap the whole tree in garlands of pink. The show doesn’t quite stop after the flowers bloom because in fact, the Eastern Redbud tree grows bright green heart-shaped leaves! These tree puts on a spectacular show all all year long and is a great low-maintenance choice that’s also a native of North America.
