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: Prune the tree 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 off the 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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
- cardboard box
- customer service
Quick delivery and the trees were packed securely in a heavy cardboard box - they arrived in excellent condition. The plant looks great although not yet mature enough to look like the photographs. I think a pamphlet on how to groom the tree as it grows to look like the photo would be helpful.
My two Ruby Falls red buds arrived in excellent condition and are doing great as of now they both have grow new leaves and look very healthy
I received two completely dead trees
This redbud went far beyond my expectations! When the first one I ordered arrived damaged, customer service promptly responded to my concerns and offered a replacement. The second one arrived in perfect condition and I am thrilled! The replacement was well-branched and large. It was much better than anything I could find in a local nursery, and much better priced as well. It will be a beautiful addition to my landscape. I can't wait to see it take off! This was my first experience shopping with Fast Growing Trees, but it won't be my last.
