The Call of the Wild

If your garden or landscape is missing that certain something, then you simply must consider the Forest Pansy Redbud.

Perfect in size, its medium stature--topping out at between 20 to 30 feet--will give you ample planting choices and work well with a variety of designs. The floral display will add a burst of color with a natural appeal that will brighten your garden and add warmth and charm like few other trees can.

Like A Beacon in Your Garden

The Forest Pansy's smooth, gray branches stretch out vertically, hoisting gorgeous red, almost violet flowers to form a lovely canopy alive with vibrant color. The delicate petals fan out in wonderful clusters, attracting hummingbirds and other welcome visitors hovering for a look. It's a spectacular show of color that will awaken your garden in early spring, weeks before most other blooms. Create a wildlife themed garden or naturalized landscape and the bees won't be the only ones buzzing about it. Your envious neighbors will too.

The Show Must Go On

Just because spring gives way to summer doesn't mean the Redbud's job is done. Once fall arrives, your Forest Pansy will come alive with color again; but this time it's the leaves that put on the show. Like lily pads suspended from stems among the branches, the green leaves begin to mix in splashes of yellow and orange to tantalize the eye.

Whether for your garden, landscape, walkway or patio, any place you choose to plant it would be vastly improved with the addition of a Forest Pansy Redbud.

This is my all time favorite tree. Beautiful early spring flowers. Frost proof it seems, by the way. It grows as wide as tall, which makes it visually great to look at. It does have a tendency to not grow straight, especially when young and in a windy area like mine. Be sure to stake it for the first few years. Gotta love the name, too!

Beautiful Forest Pansy Redbud Tree

I ordered the 6-7’ tree in late Feb and planted it beginning of March. It arrived with no leaves and looked like a skinny twig so at first I was a little scared. It’s been in the ground for 2 months now and is covered in leaves. I am excited to see how it grows over the years. The tree trunk is very thin for the height of the tree. Be sure to have a few 1”x 1/2” wood plant stakes an appropriate height for what you order. I bought 6ft stakes for a 6-7’ tree. They are too thin to withstand any wind on their own l.

One flower redbud

Tree is starting to Bud Now I have one flower on one branch on the top so I know it’s in good shape . Plant it two weeks ago, When it gets bigger, it’ll be a focal point of my lawn. It’s what I expected when it was delivered 6 to 7 feet.
