The Only Weeping, White Variegated Redbud

Why Whitewater Redbud Trees?

Vivid variegated foliage meets a graceful weeping habit, setting the Whitewater Redbud Tree apart from similar varieties. A newer introduction in the Redbud family, this eye-catching specimen lives up to its name with heart-shaped white and green leaves.

Vibrant blooms in tones of deep purple and rose emerge in spring, adding another layer of color to the Whitewater Redbud. Plus, because it's tolerant of urban pollution and inner-city environments, it can be planted almost anywhere...from driveway borders to streets and beyond.

And since it's so compact, it can even be trained as a shrub or hedge. When it comes to the Whitewater Redbud, you're not limited in growing...this unique variety can thrive in the tightest garden spaces.

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, you can 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 any dead or damaged wood in late winter and remove any shoots that are growing from the bottom of the trunk.

Arrived to me in a

Arrived to me in a little state of shock, indicated by drooping leaves at the very top of the delicate stem. Called a very sweet and knowledgeable customer svc rep who suggested I plant it in the evening soon. I used some Root Rocket and planted it. Its seems to be ok now even though the top 1/3 seems dried and dead. If it doesn’t survive (I’m praying it does the pretty little thing!)I am confident FGT will remedy any issue! I love FGTs.

Tree arrived in reasonable condition

So far so good! The tree is not fully leafed, but I expect that in the middle of a hot summer.
