Buy Merlot Redbud online. Is a deciduous tree that sports large rounded glossy dark purple leaves; its tight dense habit make it perfect for smaller yards. Strong, bright pink sweetpea like blooms are borne on the bare stems in early spring.

Family: Fabaceae · Common Name: Redbud

Redbud is a fascinating genus of small trees with several species and many varieties and cultivars. Native to the eastern and southern US, Redbuds are scattered throughout the countryside’s and are one of the first trees to flower in early spring, along with Dogwoods. Redbuds require well draining soil even to the point of being rocky. If planted in wet or poorly draining soils the trees will decline in health rather quickly. Best planted high and dry!

  1. Joan - Aug 28, 2015
    California (Hardiness Zone: 8)

    This is a lovely tree and perfect for a relatively small space. Ours is in its 2nd year and is really developing its branches and leafy canopy. Its first bloom this past winter wasn't huge but I'm sure it will be this coming winter! It's so pretty that our neighbors got one, too.
