Stunning Redbud with Deep Purple Foliage

Why Merlot Redbud Trees?

Merging everything you love in a Redbud into a slightly smaller form, the Merlot is a phenomenal hybrid that delivers classic blooms with the twist of lustrous purple leaves that gradually fade to green in the summer. 

You’ll also get new features that will make this tree even more desirable, like excellent drought tolerance and glossier leaves that stand up to summer heat with ease.

Vibrant red-purple leaves mean the Merlot lives up to its name. The most exciting feature of the new Merlot Redbud is the outstanding color of the foliage. First, you get its reddish-pink blossoms...then the reward of the Merlot's deep, dark purple leaves that continue to impress as they fade into deep green. Whether you plant this tree alone or amongst others in your garden, it takes your yard to the next level.

Why FastGrowingTrees.com is Better

When you order your Merlot Redbud from Fast Growing Trees, you get a reliable, proven performer. Unlike Redbuds from big-box nurseries, your Redbud arrives at your door, ready to thrive.

We’ve taken care to ensure that your Merlot Redbud has the best head start on growth. Now, your tree is delivered with better branching for even more blooms...never bare-root like most other garden centers.

Our larger Merlot Redbud sizes can bloom as soon as the first year, so they sell out very quickly. Don’t wait - buy yours today!

So Awesome

I absolutely love the tree! My neighbor planted one two to three years ago and I just had to have one. I removed the two massive live oaks that were destroying my front lawn and roots getting close to my foundation. Received my tree, 4-5 foot, in bloom and couldn't wait to plant. I was surprised to see the tree was okay as the courier ignored the well documented method of handling on the box! Totally recommend Fast Growing Trees!
