What Are Some Varieties of Redbud Trees?
Two main species of redbud are the Eastern redbud and the Chinese redbud, each with an abundance of cultivars. Eastern redbud varieties include "Convey," a weeping specimen with pinkish-purple flowers, twisting branches and a mature height of only five feet. In direct contrast is "Forest Pansy," which can grow to a mature height of 30 feet. In spring, it flowers in pinkish-purple, and in cooler summer climates, its leaves remain a rich dark burgundy.
