Incredible, Showy Pink Flowers for Spring

If you appreciate flowering trees as much as we do, you'll love the showy pink flowers of the Eastern Redbud.

The Eastern Redbud is one of the first trees to flower in the early spring, blooming petite pink flowers in large clusters.

These colorful blooms appear in late winter or early spring. Soon after, dark green, glossy leaves begin to form a beautiful backdrop, making these rosy-pink blooms stand out even more.

Ideal for tight places or small lots, but will brighten up even the largest yards. Matures to 20-30 ft. tall into a dense, round shape.

Grows in a variety of soils and climates.

These are strong trees with deep root systems. Very resistant to storm, ice and wind damage.

This tree is really pretty I live in Los Angeles I got them before spring of 2014 and it quickly grew 4feet by summer, when I planted the trees they bloom beautifully in spring with dark pink flowers it was amazing and this fall it turns into golden yellow. If you want a tree that can tolerate different climates this is the one.

Beauty that is worth the wait!
The REAL test of any company is How well does the company back their product, especially when the customer buys an extended warranty!
My first two Eastern Redbuds were rather small and fragile looking and when they didn't perform very well I redeemed my extended warranty. This is when REAL CUSTOMER SERVICE KICKED IN: FAST-GROWING made it very easy to redeem my warranty and their replacements were twice as GOOD, bigger, stronger looking. The replacements should have came on the first order. Notwithstanding the inconvenience, FAST-GROWING DID COME THRU IN A VERY POSITIVE WAY WHICH WILL LEAD TO FUTURE PURCHASES FROM NOT ONLY ME BUT TO MANY OTHERS THAT MAY HAVE AN INFLUENCE. NOW, THE REAL TEST WILL BE THE ACTUAL GROWTH OF THESE BEAUTIFUL TREES.

Beautiful tree
I have always enjoyed seeing Eastern Redbud trees blooming in the spring in Tennessee when I go to visit family. They bring such vivid color to the newly emerging forest green. I began noticing them in my neighbor hood and decided to put some in my yard as several of our Aspen trees have come to the end of their lives. I ordered two Eastern Redbud trees from Fast Growing Trees on a Friday and they e-mailed me just after I had placed my order and told me they would be shipping them out the following Monday. I received the trees and put them in the ground within 18 hours. Both trees were doing fine at first, until several weeks after planting one of the tree's leaves began to wilt and die. We made sure the tree was getting enough water, but it continued to die. I contacted Fast Growing Trees and they sent me an e-mail letting me know how to test the tree to see if it is dead or not. I did the test and the tree is definately dead. The good thing is, is that Fast Growing Trees guarantee their product and will send me out a new tree. The other tree we had purchased is doing well and is putting out new growth and is becoming established. It will be great to see it flowering next spring.

eastern red bud tree
Thank you for sending over the review query. The red bud lost all of its leaves and looked a bit sickly when I first received it. Small branches of new growth are slowly sprouting from the base of the tree now, and hopefully, it will survive, but it is not a hardy looking tree right now nor when it first arrived. Time will tell.

The price was great for the size that came. Were some leaves on it. I say were, because the leaves turned brown and fell off. There are about six leaves, green, on it right now. Hopefully it will live and grow and be beautiful

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Eastern Redbud


Eastern Redbud Planting Diretions

Choosing a location: The Redbud tree (or "Judas tree") is a lovely harbinger of spring and has been referred to as “a breath of fresh air after a long winter.” What makes the redbud so special is its gift of spring color and its hardy adaptability. The purple pink flowers of the eastern redbud appear all over the tree in early spring and are even produced on the larger trunks. They do well in locations with full sun to partial shade (afternoon shade is best). A soil pH of about 7.5 is recommended as well as well draining soil. Avoid planting in areas that are prone to flooding or that collect standing water. 

Planting Directions

1) Select a site 6 to 8 feet from existing structures and about 3 feet from fences. Clear a 4 to 5 foot radius of any competing plants, weeds or grass. 

2) Redbud roots establish quicker in loosened, aerated soil so spread about 4 inches of compost over the planting site to improve drainage and the soil texture. After digging your planting hole blend compost into the soil to around 1 foot deep and 3 feet in diameter using a shovel and/or spade fork. 

3) Dig a planting hole for the redbud twice as wide as the diameter and as deep as the depth of the root ball. Rub the root system to loosen the outer roots. Fill the hole halfway with the removed soil and top it off with water. Fill it in the rest of the way and water again to settle the soil, using a total of about 15 gallons of water.

4) Spread 3 to 4 inches of mulch over the planting site but be sure it's about 4 inches away from the base of the trunk to prevent fungus and rot. Mulch conserves water in the soil, adds nutrients as it breaks down and aids in weed prevention.

Watering: Watering a newly planted tree depends on things like the amount of rainfall you get in your area, temperatures and what season it is. When trees are newly planted their watering requirements are high but take care, root growth is slow in soil that is too wet or too dry. During the first year make sure to water your tree often enough to keep its soil moist yet not soaked. Pay close attention to your tree during the dry season, so that you can ensure that it receives enough water. Water later in the evening after the heat of the day has subsided. This way, the water will not evaporate immediately and the roots have a good chance at absorbing the moisture.

Pruning: To shape future growth, pruning redbud trees while they’re young is a must. Another reason to prune is to strengthen the connections of the main leaders to the trunk. Pruning helps form U-shaped junctions so the primary limbs can support leaves and flowers. Prune the tree in early summer after the tree is done blooming. Begin by removing any larger lower branches and branches that cross over each other or rub together. Cut off the branches close to the trunk without leaving any stubs. Stubs allow an entrance for disease and pests to enter. If several branches need to be removed, do it over a course of months so that the tree doesn't go into shock of losing so much of its growth. In late winter, prune any dead and diseased wood. Cut out any tiny twigs and branches that have turned brown. Also, cut off any shoots that are coming up from the bottom or out of the trunk.

*Tip: Sterilize your pruning tools with a basic household rubbing alcohol to ensure a healthy cut during pruning.

Fertilizing: In early spring you can apply some compost and/or a complete fertilizer such as 5-10-5 in *granular form. Spread evenly around the root zone of the plant according to the label instructions. This combined with maintaining several inches of organic mulch year round should be sufficient to feed the soil and keep the tree healthy. 

*Granular (or dry fertilizer) is a type of fertilizer, which comes in a dry pelleted form as opposed to spikes, a liquid, or powder.

Early settlers found the blossoms of the redbud a delicious addition to their salads. Early folk healers used the bark to treat common maladies and sometimes even leukemia. Many Native Americans chose the wood of the California redbud for constructing their bows. The sheer springtime beauty of the redbud may be its greatest hold on the American spirit and a wonderful addition of color to any landscape.

I planted a Redbud last year and it is getting tiny leaves but never bloomed beforehand. Why is that?
Jennifer C on Apr 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There could be a number of reasons. Not enough sunlight. They need a minimum of 4 hours direct sunlight a day in order to bloom.
Nitrogen fertilizer (for grass) could also cause flowering trees not to bloom.
Lack of fertilizer. In early spring you can apply some compost and/or a complete fertilizer such as 5-10-5 in *granular form. Spread evenly around the root zone of the plant according to the label instructions. This combined with maintaining several inches of organic mulch year round should be sufficient to feed the soil and keep the tree healthy.
*Granular (or dry fertilizer) is a type of fertilizer, which comes in a dry pelleted form as opposed to spikes, a liquid, or powder.
It can also take 5-7 years for them to bloom.

BEST ANSWER: Redbud Trees are best trimmed immediately after they bloom. Sometime in mid-spring.
Can this tree be pruned so that it is not so close to the ground? I'd like about 4 to 5 feet of trunk so that I can mow grass beneath it.
Steve S on Apr 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: As the tree grows, remove one or two of the lower branches each year. One of my Red Buds is 20 feet tall and I have 6 feet clear space between the ground and the first branch.
I just brought a Red Bud.How do I plant it for success? I want to plant it tomorrow. Will it do well on the east side of my home? Please let me know if it will do well in some shade.

Is this tree deciduous? The cottonwoods we have made a huge mess with their leaves which we fight all fall and winter
Barbara G on Feb 25, 2016

Does this tree come in a dormant stage?
A shopper on Jul 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I received my Red Bud during the winter months so it arrived while still in the dormant state. It did, however, start "waking up" shortly after I had planted it. It now has some very nice heart shaped leaves on it!
