Forest Pansy Redbud
Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy'
|Description||Beautiful landscape tree valued for its brilliant scarlet-purple color to new foliage, maturing to maroon. Rosy-pink flowers on bare branches bridge the gap between winter and spring! Deciduous.|
|Watering||Water when top 3 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Moderate grower to 20 ft. tall, 25 ft. wide.|
|Design Ideas||As 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.|
|Companion Plants||Witch Hazel (Hamamelis); Snowberry (Symphoricarpos); Japanese Forest Grass (Hakonechloa); Oak Leaf Hydrangea (Hydrangea); Oregon Grape Holly (Mahonia)|
|Care||Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.|
