15g White Eastern Redbud
Cercis canadensis f. 'Alba'


Grows 20' - 30' h x 25' - 35' sp

This version of the Eastern Redbud has soft, creamy-white flowers that pop open in early spring.  The tree itself can grow to 20’ – 30 tall with up to a 35’ spread.  Fall leaf color is a pleasant pale yellow, and the tree sports flattened bean-like pods (a food source) that remain on the tree into winter.  Redbuds are fantastic understory trees that provide early-season nectar sources for birds, bees and other pollinators, as well as habitat for caterpillars, an important food source for baby birds.
