Cercis canadensis 'Alley Cat' - Eastern Redbud

Cercis canadensis 'Alley Cat' PPAF

Redbud - Eastern

'Alley Cat' Eastern Redbud has foliage liberally splashed with white, and its striking variegation is stable and scorch resistant.  The dark pink pea-shaped flowers emerge in April just before the leaves begin to show in shades of copper pink and soft green.  As the foliage matures, the white emerges and makes a lovely contrast to the green.  Alan Bush found Cercis 'Alley Cat' in an alley near his home in Kentucky, and gave it to Harald Neubauer of Hidden Hollow Nursery to introduce.

PRN Preferred:  The best and most reliable variegation in Redbuds.
