Design IdeasAs a native of the eastern U.S., Forest Pansy makes a perfect candidate for wildlife gardens and all native and naturalized landscapes. Add to beds and borders or create a long range focal point. Redbuds offer four seasons of change so use them in multiples in front yard foundation plantings for an eye catching display. Their small stature makes them a comfortable fit in both small urban gardens or large estates.
