Product Description

A Profusion of Rose-Purple Flowers Every Spring!

Why Avondale Redbud Trees?

Get a stunning spring display! With dark, rose-purple flowers literally covering the stems, the Avondale Redbud is one of the most profuse flowering Redbuds, perfect for adding big impact to small spaces. 

Your Avondale Redbud tree will burst with vibrant color in early spring, with a carpet of bright magenta blooms. As the blooms fade, glossy green leaves take their place. The classic, heart-shaped foliage will turn a golden yellow hue in fall, for a beautiful multi-season display.

With a compact, semi-dwarf size, this colorful and versatile little tree can go where other Redbuds can't. Your Avondale Redbud will thrive in small corner beds, raised planters, and even patio containers. Wherever you plant it, you're guaranteed to get bright spring color and long-lasting beauty.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Select an area with well-drained soil and full sun to partial sun (4 to 6 hours of direct sunlight with some afternoon shade). Your Redbud will prefer light shade in hot, desert climates.

Dig a hole twice as wide as the diameter and as deep as your tree’s root ball. Place your tree, backfill the soil, and water to settle the tree’s roots. Finally, spread 3 to 4 inches of mulch over the planting site to conserve moisture.

2. Watering: During the first year, water your tree about once or twice weekly. If you’re not sure when to water, check the surrounding soil to about 3 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it’s time to water your tree. You'll need to water more often for container-planted Redbuds.

After the first year, your Redbud can thrive on rainfall alone, but we recommend that you continue to check the soil. Soil should remain moist about 3 inches down.

3. Fertilizing: In early spring, apply compost or a complete fertilizer, such as 5-10-5. Spread evenly around the root zone of the plant according to the label instructions.

Cut off the branches close to the trunk without leaving any stubs. If several branches need to be removed, remove gradually over a few months. In late winter, prune any dead or damaged wood and remove any shoots that are growing from the bottom of the trunk.
