'Whitewater' ('NC2007-8') Redbud combines a more vivid form of variegation with a broadly weeping habit. The pea-shaped flowers in April and May are a deep rose-purple, displayed on the bare branches. They are quickly followed by the heart-shaped leaves which emerge mostly white with green flecks, and mature to mostly green with white flecks. The weeping habit is an exciting addition to the bright variegated foliage. An unusual cross of 'Silver Cloud' and 'Covey' by Dr. Dennis Werner of NC State.
