When Love is in the air, Cercis canadensis Ruby Falls is the plant you want in your garden! Its beautiful leaves are heart-shaped, perfect for a romantic garden setting with a picnic table and bench. This little tree has a pronounced weeping habit and the branches can sometimes touch the ground if left unpruned.
The Weeping redbud stands out with a fabulous display of colour. In spring, the bare branches are smothered with purple-pink and lavender-pink small flowers that have a sweet fragrance. Bees, butterflies and birds will soon be attracted bringing sound and movement into your space. Soon after, the leaves appear in a rich ruby red colour. They are glossy and pendulous, weighing down the branches and creating a fiesta of colourful hearts.
As autumn approaches, the foliage turns to a golden yellow and fiery scarlet red before falling. The leaves are ideal for pressing between the pages a heavy book and can be used in school projects, scrap booking and to make wonderful Valentine’s Day cards.
Your Weeping redbud is a deciduous tree and will lose its leaves in winter. Plant in full sun to get the best colour out of the leaves. It prefers moist, well-drained soil but is very hardy and can tolerate a range of soil types. If left unpruned, it will grow to a height of 2.5m and a spread of 1.5m in a 10 year period.
Cercis canadensis Ruby Falls is ideal for smaller gardens, cottage gardens and those forgotten corners in need of a splash of interest and instant colour.
