Interesting Facts

This tree has glossy, heart-shaped leaves and lots of pink flowers in spring.  The flowers eventually give way to seed pods. Keep this in mind: if you want to plant the Redbud in a small space, the tree can actually grow up to 20 feet tall and 15 feet wide at maturity. Most people think it is a small ornamental tree (similar to the crape myrtle), because you see so many young trees planted in parking lots and easements.  The Redbud is actually the official tree of Southlake, TX.
