The Best Tri-Color Redbud Available

Why Carolina Sweetheart ® Redbud Trees?

Delivering a rainbow of color in early summer, with new foliage and layer upon layer of vibrant hues, the Carolina Sweetheart® Redbud Tree is in a league of its own. And unlike its more common family member, the Eastern Redbud, it offers the Redbud benefits you love in an entirely new color palette.

Pink blooms welcome spring and new leaves emerge in a deep purple tone. Over time, the full, voluminous foliage transitions to varying shades of green, white and hot pink.

This dimensional color makes the Carolina Redbud unlike any other. Whether you plant this tree alone as a focal point in your front yard or amongst others in your garden, it takes your landscape to the next level. In fact, with the Carolina Sweetheart® Redbud, you'll have the yard of the year.

Phenomenal Redbud Tree

This was my first time ordering a tree this size and altogether I am very impressed. Everything was packaged securely and delivered quickly. The quality of this tree is phenomenal. I am amazed with the amount of growth I have had since planting just less than a month ago. I have wanted this variety of redbud for a while and so happy to have purchased through this company. Will definitely order from here again in the future.

2021 Carolina Sweetheart

I live in grow zone 5 and this tree has done amazing. I planted in 2021 as a memorial tree and it is a beautiful tribute.

Nice... Spring Time🙂

The small tree was shipped with no leaves but was shipped with care. I got the nice trunk with evenly grown branches which is not usual always but I was lucky. It was nicely taped around branches. Got that around close the spring start. Waited for couple weeks to see some tiny buds.. Now it is spring Time.. Uploaded the pictures.. Waiting to see how it catches up with Southern California heat in the summer.. overall very good.

Dormant tree

The tree is a good size, root system is in good shape. Planted and waiting for spring to see this beautiful foliage and of course the redbud flowers.
