Quick Overview:

‘Appalachian Red’ is a red-flowered cultivar that was discovered growing along a road in Maryland. It typically grows to 15-25′ tall. Clusters of tiny, fuchsia-pink to red, pea-like flowers bloom for 2-3 weeks in early spring (April) before the foliage emerges. Heart-shaped foliage with pointed tips matures to a dull, dark blue-green in summer and turns yellow in fall.

Description

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Part shade is best in hot climates. Performs best in moderately fertile soils with regular and consistent moisture.
