The Forest Pansy Red Bud tree is an excellent small tree for lawns, woodland gardens or naturalized areas. It is frequently planted as a street tree in residential areas. "Forest Pansy" Red Bud trees are a purple-leaved cultivar of the popular Missouri native red bud tree. It is a small, deciduous, understory tree with a spreading, flat-to-rounded crown. It can eventually grow to 20-30' tall.

Clusters of tiny, rose-purple, pea-like flowers bloom profusely on the branches and mature trunks for 2-3 weeks in early spring (March-April) before the foliage emerges. Flowers tend to be darker and more purplish than other species. Heart-shaped leaves open bright reddish-purple and gradually mature to a more muted purple. Fall color is variable, but often includes attractive shades of reddish-purple and orange. Red Buds are true harbingers of spring. Easily grown in average, medium wet, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade.
