    Design IdeasWhile this Chinese Redbud looks similar in structure and bloom as the U.S. native, it is much smaller, allowing it for more applications in the landscape. Incorporate it in a minimalist Asian garden or in the wild beauty of a native landscape. This tree can go where others can't, such as in raised planters, corner beds and even a patio container where you can enjoy its beauty up close.
