Flamethrower Eastern Redbud (Cercis canadensis ‘Flamethrower’), is a new variety of redbud (introduced in 2020) that has extremely unique foliage color, with four to five different foliage colors (burgundy, red, orange, yellow, lime) on just one branch. New growth is burgundy/red and ages to bright yellow, then green. Leaf scorch is very minimal, and the tree itself is low maintenance. It has a semi-pendulous habit, growing to 15–20 feet high and 15 feet wide.
