The Most Prolific Redbud Bloomer
Why Don EGolf Redbud Trees?
Delivering a profusion of blooms on a compact, rounded silhouette, the Don EGolf Redbud Tree is unique in its ability to give you a huge amount of color and voluminous flowers without actually taking up much space.
It's a U.S. National Arboretum introduction that's prized for its vibrant, full pink blooms and unmatched disease and pest resistance. That means you get all of the beauty without any of the fuss...no need for harsh sprays or chemicals to keep this gorgeous focal tree growing strong.
Even better is the fact that it's sterile, so it won't drop messy seed pods in your yard. Plus, because its multi-stemmed, tidy habit is slow-growing, you won't have to worry about pruning or trimming. Simply plant your Don Egolf, sit back, and watch the jaw-dropping show.

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).
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.
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.
4. Pruning: In late winter, you can prune any dead or damaged wood and remove any shoots that are growing from the bottom of the trunk.
