Quick Overview:

The Alley Cat Redbud Tree was discovered by plantsman Allen Bush in an alley near his home in Louisville, Kentucky. Unlike some other variegated Redbuds, the new tree shows an alley cat toughness; the foliage doesn’t scorch in sun, nor does the variegation fade in hot weather.  Featuring lavender-pink flowers that hug the branches in spring and pretty heart-shaped leaves splashed with white variegation, this handsome ornamental tree will steal your heart.

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 with regular and consistent moisture. Avoid wet or poorly drained soils.
