Tennessee Pink Redbud is a deciduous flowering tree, often said to be one of the most beautiful of flowering native trees. The trunk is divided close to the ground, branches spreading, forming a flat-topped to rounded crown. The redbud’s native range is Massachusetts to Florida, west to Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, and Mexico. They add seasonal ornamental attributes to landscapes, rewarding with expressive and much-anticipated spring flowers, elegant and artistic branching structure, clean dark summer foliage, and respectable yellow fall color.
