Romantic Pink Flowers and Beautiful Branching
Why Pink Heartbreaker Redbuds?
Looking to make a romantic, eye-catching statement in your landscape? The Pink Heartbreaker Redbud is the perfect choice.
In spring, the Pink Heartbreaker Redbud Tree's elegant weeping branches bloom with small, lavender-pink flowers. This tree makes a gorgeous centerpiece in any yard or garden, without the extensive maintenance that some flowering trees and bushes require. It's perfect in foundational beds in the front or side of your home, or as forest-side edging.
While it blooms from April to May, the Pink Heartbreaker Redbud provides visual interest much longer, with bright green, heart-shaped leaves following the spring bloom. Plus, with a small, manageable shape, it can be planted almost anywhere in your landscape.
You'll love the Pink Heartbreaker Redbud for its sophisticated yet wild branching. Once the branches develop, they weep into floating tendrils, giving the tree a natural look that adds whimsy to informal landscapes. Branching is also stronger than other Eastern Redbud varieties.
Make a statement through spring and summer and beyond with the graceful, elegant Pink Heartbreaker Redbud.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Select an area with well-drained soil and full sun to partial sun (ideally, 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 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, it’s time to water your tree.
After establishing 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: Prune the tree as needed in early summer, after the tree is done blooming. Begin by removing any larger lower branches and branches that cross over each other or rub together.
Cut 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.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Customer Reviews & Photos
- Pink Heartbreaker
- Lavender Twist
Got the 5-6’, and it arrived quickly and in great shape. It’s attractive and appears strong and healthy. I also got a 5-6’ Lavender Twist weeping redbud, also attractive and in great shape. If you’re choosing between them, the Pink Heartbreaker seems a much sturdier tree, whereas the Twist needs training/staking (and came staked).
The tree arrived late as Fed Ex was experiencing delivery problems. The tree has lost many leaves and I was afraid it was not going to survive . I am happy to report that the redbud is finally showing signs of growth . I am encouraged !
We're so sorry to hear how your tree arrived but glad it seems to be recovering well! Please reach out to us with any questions or concerns!
Disappointed but not overall
Came in broken box. Looked like twig. Leaves at bottom of box. Saving grace is Fast Growing Trees is replacing. They are making things right. Otherwise I rate service 5. Receipt condition 2.
We are so sorry to hear how your tree arrived but glad we could ultimately make it right with a replacement!
The size of this tree is perfect for the spot it was planted in. Arrived very quickly and in good shape. Can’t wait until it fills out a bit and looking forward to next spring when it has pink flowers.
The tree arrived in perfect condition. The vendor took great lengths to ensure it was packed properly to survive the travel. Thank you
