Texas Redbud (Cercis canadensis var. texensis)

This attractive small tree is a harbinger of a Hill Country Spring, with electric pink flowers covering its bare branches, followed by shiny dark-green leaves. Fall color is a clear, sulphur yellow. Texas redbud is very drought tolerant and is often found on solid rock outcroppings. It generally lives about 35 years, and at maturity, becomes multi-trunked. "Traveller", our patented cultivar, is a weeping form of the tree.

Texas redbud needs protection from deer, as they will browse new growth.
