One of the Only White Flowering Redbuds

Why Vanilla Twist Redbud Trees?

Offering everything you love in a Redbud plus the one-of-a-kind benefit of white blooms, the Vanilla Twist is a phenomenal tree that lives up to its name.

In early spring, the show begins with a profusion of pure white blooms that grace the Vanilla Twist's unique weeping canopy. Heart-shaped leaves then take center stage, maturing to a deep green that offers continued visual interest throughout the summer months.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

New Redbud introductions, particularly the Vanilla Twist, are hard to find.

But when you order your Vanilla Twist Redbud from Fast Growing Trees, you get a reliable, proven performer with a deep, well-developed root system and the promise of unmatched color and blooms. Your Redbud arrives at your door, ready to thrive.

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

And our larger Vanilla Twist Redbud sizes can bloom pure white as soon as the first year.

Since the Vanilla Twist Redbud is one of the newest Redbud varieties, it will sell out very quickly. Don’t hesitate to buy yours today!

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.

Great Tree

The tree is supposed to be amazing! We are looking forward to spring and summer to see the white flowers. We did not give five stars because when shipped it arrived with only a few leaves and the box had been clearly not treated to well. This was likely the shipper but maybe this can be helped in the future.

So in love with this tree

We couldn't be happier with our experience at FastGrowingTrees.com. Our tree arrived quickly and was very well-packaged and healthy looking. We planted it soon after receiving it and it is thriving. We can't wait until the first blooms appear! We will definitely be ordering more from this company in the future.

Vanilla Twist

First experience ordering trees online. This particular tree was packaged very well, handled the journey like a champ, and is now happily planted. The other Rising Sun variety did not enjoy the journey as much but, after a brief period of shock, has started putting out new growth. All in all, I am pleased and would order again.
