Product Details

Be the first in your neighborhood to celebrate spring with an explosion of gorgeous rosy purple blooms. The Oklahoma or Texas Redbud is loaded with early blooms that bring life and color back to a barren winter landscape.  Spring isn't the only season to admire your Oklahoma Redbud though!

The wide canopy boasts an umbrella shape that looks lovely even during winter's dormancy.  Redbuds have showy, shiny, heart-shaped leaves that glisten in the sun.  Young leaves emerge in spring, shimmering red and as they age turn a crisp, clean green.  In fall the green fades to a lovely yellow that you won't want to miss.  Red-purple seed pods add further interest in spring, turning brown in late summer and often staying through winter.  The pink-purple blooms coat the Oklahoma Redbud throughout spring.

Gardeners of all levels LOVE this tree!  It is compact, only growing between 15-25 feet wide and tall.  The Oklahoma Redbud is deer and drought tolerant and an incredibly strong tree that stands up well to wind and ice. This tree grows in full sun to part shade and is adaptable to any soil as long as it isn't saturated.  Wildlife and birds love the seed pods.  The blooms attract butterflies and hummingbirds.

Use the Oklahoma Redbud as a specimen tree, deck or patio tree.  Redbuds look stunning in mass.  Line both sides of a large walkway or driveway for a big WOW factor.

However you choose to add the Oklahoma Redbud to your landscape, you are sure to adore it for years to come!

How To Care for your new Oklahoma Redbud Tree

When planting your Oklahoma Redbud be sure you have the right location and conditions for your new tree to thrive.  Spring and fall are ideal times to plant.  However, if you avoid freezing and hot temperatures you can plant almost any time of the year.  

Redbuds are very easy to maintain.  These trees tolerate full sun, part sun, and part shade and are adaptable to any soil as long as it isn't saturated. Water your new Redbud deeply about twice a week for the first couple months.  After establishment, this redbud is drought tolerant.  In extended drought periods this tree will benefit from a weekly deep watering. Add a layer of 2 to 3 inches of mulch around the base of the tree about the size of the tree canopy.  Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease.  Fertilize in early spring, summer and when planting to give your tree a boost.  Choose a balanced, slow release fertilizer.  Redbuds don't generally require pruning, but if needed, prune immediately after blooming has ceased to remove any dead, dying, crowded or crossed branches.  Pruning in winter is likely to cause bloom loss.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants.  Proper location choice, watering and fertilization are the keys to your success. Avoid problems with Borer insects by ensuring your tree remains free from damage, especially from lawn equipment.  Mulching helps to keep weeds at bay which eliminates the need to use lawn equipment near your tree.  Borers look for a hole or weak spot to penetrate. Scale is an immobile insect that can affect almost any tree.  You can treat this pest with horticultural oil. Be sure to coat the entire tree.  


Planting Directions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 1-2 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.

Would this grow in Iowa?
A shopper on Oct 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No the Oklahoma Redbud would not grow well in Iowa. The Forest Pansy goes into a zone 5 though so as long as you aren't in the small portion of the state that is a zone 4 you could plant the Forest Pansy Redbud. http://www.theplantingtree.com/forest-pansy-redbud-tree.html
