Eastern Redbud (Cercis canadensis)

Eastern Redbuds are in full bloom throughout the eastern U. S. and Canada in early May. This view shows the myriad of blooms along the branches of the tree. Photo 5-1-20.

These small trees are very common in the Eastern U. S. and Canada. Their value as a landscape plant is quite impressive. And they are equally beautiful in their natural setting along roadsides and woodland edges. They are early harbingers of spring beginning with their breathtaking displays of color in late April and early May. Spring has truly arrived when they are seen in bloom alongside dogwoods and other early flowering small trees.

The first picture shows the budding branch from which the banner was taken. The second picture is the actual tree in my garden in full bloom. (Both photos are May 1 & May 2, 2020 respectively.)

Great banner Leon!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Beautiful and wonderful banner and pics Leon.

Love Redbuds and look forward to seeing them in bloom every spring.

We have an Eastern Redbud (Cercis canadensis) too. It was gift, along with a Blue Spruce to my husband and I from my late parents from their property in May 1999.

This is one of those beauties that must be appreciated in its entirety. The branch does show how dense the blooms are, but when the whole tree is viewed it is overwhelmingly striking. It is like a finishing artifact in a garden.

Thanks Fleur. And when the buds are bloomed entirely they create a vision of delicate pink clouds. Then the gardener is treated to a shower of falling petals which decorate the surrounding garden with a natural mulch.

Thank you so much everyone for taking the time to leave your wonderful comments, thumbs and acorns! Each of you form what I call the "back bone" of these garden adventures and are a very valuable resource of information, encouragement and creative energy. Thank you so much!

Lovely banner Leon! Lovey dubby

I'm a redbud fan too, cannot imagine spring without them. They're beautiful planted with hellebores and Hyancith 'Woodstock' at their feet.

In North Carolina, you find them (and Dogwoods) naturalized at the edge of the woods. I've been taking seeds and seedlings to our property, hoping to replicate that. Spring is truly a magical time of the year.
