Discover the remarkable Texas Redbud (Cercis canadensis var. texensis), a distinct variety of the Cercis canadensis family. This versatile plant, thriving as a large shrub or small tree, stands confidently at a height of 10-20 ft. Unique from its Eastern Redbud cousin, Texas Redbud has smaller, glossier and typically hairier leaves with wavy edges, giving it a vibrant texture. The plant also bears a higher tendency of growing red seedpods. Naturally spanning from the southern mountains of Oklahoma, through the limestone-rich heartland of Central Texas to northeastern Mexico, this hardy tree is notably drought resistant, albeit not as much as the Mexican Redbud. The Texas Redbud upholds the redbud family's tradition of heralding the Spring with clusters of rose-purple flowers bursting forth before leaves emerge - an enchanting sight. Its leaves are charmingly heart-shaped or kidney-shaped, concluding to a rounded tip with slightly wavy, glossy edges. In the autumn, a spectacle unfolds as the deciduous leaves transform into gold or red colors. As winter approaches, reddish-purple seedpods add a splash of color to the landscape. Texas Redbud flourishes in the limestone soils spanning southern Oklahoma to northeastern Mexico. It's drought-tolerant, flexible to sun exposure and thrives even in relatively thinner soils. Like all redbuds, Texas Redbud is a haven for pollinators and a joy to behold as the seasons change, making it an exquisite addition to any garden.
