    Why the USDA Organic Audubon® Eastern Redbud?

    When the Redbuds are in bloom, that’s your cue to keep an eye out for the first Ruby-throated Hummingbirds returning north. Their first sip of nectar in your garden could be from your own Eastern Redbud tree. This beloved native understory tree is a fine one to include in your backyard bird space. Besides early hummingbirds, it also feeds songbirds, which eat the seeds as well as the insects they find feeding on the leaves and flowers. Eastern Redbud is a great tree to hang a bird feeder in, too. The backdrop of rosy-purple flowers will give you some fantastic photo ops!

    The Eastern Redbud became the state tree of Oklahoma amid much controversy. Just before signing it into law the governor received a telegram from the president of the national woman’s club asking him to reconsider. In her letter she informed him that the Eastern Redbud was the same tree mentioned in the bible that Judas Iscariot hanged himself on after betraying Jesus. Legend has it that this is why the branches are weak, so no one could ever hang themselves on it again. This led to national news reports which stalled the process until an Israeli native living in Oklahoma stepped forward. He claimed that the Mediterranean species, known as the “Judas Tree”, had no connection to the Eastern variety. The tree was accepted as the states tree in 1937.

    How to use in the landscape?

    This delightful native tree is sure to bring a smile to your face! Bright purplish-pink pea-like flowers cover branches in April before leaves appear. The heart-shaped leaves on Eastern Redbuds are deep green through summer, turning yellow in fall. A perfect addition to a woodland setting, a nice component for your very own naturalizing project or just a beautiful tree for your beautiful garden - no matter where you use it, you're gonna love it!

    How To Plant

    Eastern Redbuds are beautiful woodland-like trees and they are incredibly easy to grow. This is the only tree that flowers on their bark. This means that the vibrant pinkish-purple blooms will appear on their trunk as well as on their branches. They bloom in April and their floral display is like no other flowering tree! In some instances of extreme winters they will get tip dieback. Do not get discouraged! Just be patient – the tree will bloom and leaves will appear in May. Eastern Redbuds will do well in slightly shaded areas. They both require keeping the soil moist (not too wet) after initial planting. Once established, they are more tolerant of drought conditions, reducing your hand-watering responsibilities. Redbuds like fertilizer! During fall, give your Redbud a high rate dose of fertilizer once a year for about the first 3 or 4 years. Eastern Redbuds have no major insect or disease problems – and that’s always a plus! Redbuds occasionally sprout “suckers” around the base of the tree, as they appear be sure to prune them off. But when it comes to pruning the branches of your Redbud – don’t be afraid! They are so easy to prune – prune to whatever shape you like. If you don’t want to touch it – that’s fine. If you want to cut everything off except two branches that look like rabbit ears – that’s fine too (although you might get some weird looks from the neighbors – and your family).

    How To Water

    They require keeping the soil moist (not too wet) after initial planting. Once established, they are more tolerant of drought conditions, reducing your hand-watering responsibilities.

    How To Fertilize

    Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.

    How To Prune

    Redbuds occasionally sprout "suckers" around the base of the tree, as they appear be sure to prune them off. But when it comes to pruning the branches of your Redbud -- don't be afraid! They are so easy to prune -- prune to whatever shape you like. If you don't want to touch it -- that's fine. If you want to cut everything off except two branches that look like rabbit ears, that's fine too (although you might get some weird looks from the neighbors -- and your family).

    How Does Shipping Work?

    Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our large trees require expert delivery and care, that means our large trees are shipped on Bower & Branch trucks. We are the only ones who know how to ship our big and bigger trees and plants with tender loving care.

    We deliver your trees and plants directly to your driveway or curbside! Ask Bower & Branch about planting services and rates – we'd be happy to assist in installation.

    *Big trees, Size XL (A) and bigger, will take approximately 2 to 4 weeks days to be delivered. - Sizes large (AA) and smaller (Treelings) will be shipped directly to your home by a local common carrier in a plant-safe box.

    How Does Sizing Work?

    The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)

    Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.

    All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
