Weeping redbud trees are tough native American trees, but this Lavender Twist variety takes the genus to a new level with its unique weeping and twisting branches cascading toward the ground. All four seasons contribute something special to the garden! In spring, each branch is completely covered with lavender flowers; in summer, large heart-shaped leaves spill down the stems in a rich green waterfall. Autumn foliage is bright yellow, and in winter the gracefully weeping branches add interest to the landscape. The Lavender Twist Weeping Redbud Tree grows to 5-6' tall and 6-8' wide, great for a limited space, but you can stake a leader branch and train it to the height you want. Requires little maintenance, though it needs water the first year while establishing its roots.
