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.
