Cercis canadensis 'Ruby Falls' PP22097

Redbud - Eastern

'Ruby Falls' Redbud is a weeping form of 'Forest Pansy', long awaited by avid plantsmen and brought to us by Dr. Dennis Werner of NCSU. The velvety-purple foliage is displayed on graceful weeping branches, making a spectacular show in spring and early summer before it ages to bronze-green. Its rose-purple flowers emerge before the leaves unfold. The name was chosen by 5 year old Porter Neubauer of Tennessee, undoubtedly a great future nurseryman.
