Cercis canadensis Black Pearl™ PP28627

Redbud - Eastern

Black Pearl™ (‘JN16’) Eastern Redbud produces heart-shaped leaves which are such a deep purple that they almost seem black in spring. The lavender pea-shaped flowers appear densely on the stems before the foliage appears. Cercis canadensis Black Pearl™ comes from the eagle-eyed Ray Jackson, the father of Cercis canadensis The Rising Sun™.
