|The Red Bud tree, is also known as the
eastern red bud, and sometimes referred to as the Judas
tree because it dates back to biblical times. It is a small
deciduous tree that displays an abundance of purple blossoms
in the spring. It has large heart-shaped leaves during the
summer. Red Bud trees have yellow fall color.
These trees are effective as a single specimen, in groupings,
and especially nice in woodland and naturalized-type situations.
It has low water requirements and displays a high tolerance
to salt and alkali soils. Thousands of small rosy-pink flowers
appear in the spring before leaves appear. It can be used
in full sun to part shade. Does well in many soil types,
except permanently wet soils.
