Cercis canadensis, commonly known as the Eastern Redbud, Southern Eastern Redbud or Southern Redbud, is a small tree with a sturdy trunk that branches into stout limbs to form a broad, flat head. This native of the Mississippi River valley can grow in shade and often thrives as undergrowth in the forest. Its heart-shaped leaves turn bright yellow in the fall and its purple flowers add a pop of color in the spring. Cercis canadensis is highly adaptable to most soils and pH types, but does not like wet soils, especially those that are clay-based. Its flowers have a refreshing, acid taste and are rich in vitamin C, making them a great addition to salads or pickled. While difficult to grow as far west as western Kansas and Colorado, this tree grows well in New York State and southward. Offering a hardy yet ornamental option for any landscape, Cercis canadensis is routinely available for purchase.
