Quick Overview:

Perfect for smaller landscapes, this phenomenal hybrid with lustrous, dark purple leaves. Foliage is similar to Forest Pansy, but with Texas Redbud in its genes, ‘Merlot’ offers excellent drought tolerance and thicker, glossier leaves that stand up to summer heat. Tight, dense, semi-upright habit. Bright lavender-pink flowers in spring. Deciduous.

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.
