Cercis canadensis, commonly known as the Eastern redbud, is a species of flowering tree native to eastern North America. It belongs to the Fabaceae family, which is the pea family. The tree is admired for its striking display of pink or purple flowers that bloom along its branches in early spring before the leaves emerge. The leaves are heart-shaped and turn yellow in the fall. Eastern redbuds are popular ornamental trees in landscaping due to their beauty and relatively small size, making them suitable for gardens and urban landscapes. They also provide nectar for pollinators like bees and butterflies. Hardy in zones 4-9.

 

Growing Instructions for the Eastern Redbud

 

The seeds have a period of dormancy. They can be planted outdoors in the fall or winter for spring germination or they can be cold stratified to simulate winter conditions and to break their dormancy at any time of the year. 1. Scarify the seeds by nicking or sanding the seed coat. The seeds can be sanded with sandpaper, a nail file or an emery board. 2. Soak the seeds in water for several hours. 3. Put the seeds in a ziplock bag. 4. Put the bag in the refrigerator and leave it there for 3 months. 5. The seeds like moist, well-drained soil. Prepare a mixture of half potting soil and half sand, perlite or vermiculite. Put the soil in a pot. 6. Sow the seeds on the soil. 7. Cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil. 8. Water the soil so that it is moist but not wet. 9. When the seedlings are a few inches tall, they can be transplanted.
