|Flower Attributes||Showy Flowers|
|Design Ideas||Redbuds offer four seasons of change in the front yard foundation planting for an eye catching display. A native of the eastern U.S. makes it a perfect candidate for wild gardens, wildlife gardens and all native landscapes. Add to beds and borders or to create long range focal point.|
|Companion Plants||Witch Hazel (Hamamelis); Snowberry (Symphoricarpos); Dogwood (Cornus); Oak Leaf Hydrangea (Hydrangea); Oregon Grape Holly (Mahonia)|
|Care||Prefers deep, slightly alkaline, moist, well-drained sandy loams. Benefits from light shade in hotter regions. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Apply a general purpose fertilizer before new growth emerges in late winter to early spring.|
|Lore||Redbud is used by Native Americans in basket making because its inner bark bears a naturally red color preferred for creating contrasting patterns in the weave or coils.|
