In a Nutshell:
* A small tree with a sturdy upright trunk which divides into stout branches that usually spread to form a broad flat head. Found on rich bottom lands throughout the Mississippi River valley, will grow in the shade and often becomes a dense undergrowth in the forest.


In the wild, eastern redbud is a frequent native understory tree in mixed forests and hedgerows. It is also much planted as a landscape ornamental plant. more...
* Succeeds in most soils and pH types, but dislikes growing in wet soils, especially when these are of clay. Prefers a deep sandy loam and a very sunny position. more...
Comments:

Mexican Redbud has smaller leaves and is more drought tolerant than Eastern Redbud. It should be more widely used in the southwestern USA.
