Quick Overview:

‘Forest Pansy’ is a purple-leaved cultivar of the redbud tree. Fall color is variable, but often includes attractive shades of reddish-purple and orange. Commonly called eastern redbud, is a deciduous, often multi-trunked understory tree with a rounded crown that typically matures to 20-30? tall with a slightly larger spread. It is particularly noted for its stunning pea-like rose-purple flowers which bloom profusely on bare branches in early spring (March-April) before the foliage emerges.

Description

Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Part shade is best in hot climates. Since this tree does not transplant well, it should be planted when young and left undisturbed.
