Eastern Red Bud Tree

Eastern Red Bud Tree

You can’t help noticing this tree growing along the edge of woods and in yards. (Especially along the Penn’s Woods Trail!).  At this time of the year, the flowers are a stunning pink. Cercis Canadensis is an adaptable tree to add to your own yard.  I have the cultivar ‘Forest Pansy’, which I photographed yesterday, and have not had any problems. The leaves turn purple which is also very attractive. Read more about this great native tree which you can find in the Arboretum as well and attracts hummingbirds! (The flowers are also edible!)
