The Best Tri-Color Redbud Available

Why Carolina Sweetheart ® Redbud Trees?

Delivering a rainbow of color in early summer, with new foliage and layer upon layer of vibrant hues, the Carolina Sweetheart® Redbud Tree is in a league of its own. And unlike its more common family member, the Eastern Redbud, it offers the Redbud benefits you love in an entirely new color palette.

Pink blooms welcome spring and new leaves emerge in a deep purple tone. Over time, the full, voluminous foliage transitions to varying shades of green, white and hot pink.

This dimensional color makes the Carolina Redbud unlike any other. Whether you plant this tree alone as a focal point in your front yard or amongst others in your garden, it takes your landscape to the next level. In fact, with the Carolina Sweetheart® Redbud, you'll have the yard of the year.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Select an area with well-drained soil and full sun to partial sun (4 to 6 hours of direct sunlight with some afternoon shade).

Dig a hole twice as wide as the diameter and as deep as your tree’s root ball. Place your tree, backfill the soil, and water to settle the tree’s roots. Finally, spread 3 to 4 inches of mulch over the planting site to conserve moisture.

2. Watering: During the first year, water your tree about once or twice weekly. If you’re not sure when to water, check the surrounding soil to about 3 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it’s time to water your tree.

After the first year, your Redbud can thrive on rainfall alone, but we recommend that you continue to check the soil. Soil should remain moist about 3 inches down.

3. Fertilizing: In early spring, apply compost or a complete fertilizer, such as 5-10-5. Spread evenly around the root zone of the plant according to the label instructions.

4. Pruning: Prune the tree in early summer after the tree is done blooming. Begin by removing any larger lower branches and branches that cross over each other or rub together.

Cut off the branches close to the trunk without leaving any stubs. If several branches need to be removed, remove gradually over a few months. In late winter, prune any dead or damaged wood and remove any shoots that are growing from the bottom of the trunk.
