How To Care for your new Ruby Falls Redbud Tree

When planting your Ruby Falls 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. The Ruby Falls redbud is pest and disease resistant so it rarely encounters any serious healthy problems. 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.

Buy from www.theplantingtree.com!
Arrived in great condition and in a pot, not bare-root. Its leaves are gorgeous purple-green and overall shape of the plant will grab your attention. Buying from online from the Planting Tree was smooth and pain-free. Delivery was quick and quality of their plants are impressive. For the price, they sent me good sized plants.

A lot less tree than the pictures online.
The wife was disappointed that the tree was not fuller.
Not much like the ordering picture.  Hope it fills out one day.

We are sorry to hear that you are disappointed in your order. These trees tend to grow up and they hit that mature height and then fill out. They are such healthy wonderful trees. I really think you will be happy with it. At the height it is now you will start to see it fill out a lot more in the next couple of years. You won't see much if any growth this year since it is the end of the growing season and it will be establishing its roots up until winter, but I think you will be impressed with what this little tree does next spring and summer:) Keep us posted!

I saw this tree in a neighbor's yard and have loved watching it grow and bloom. I love the shape of the tree, the shape of the leaves, and the small size. The tree is unique and different, I was thrilled to see that The Planting Tree had one.

BEST ANSWER: We do not sell any bareroot. This tree is in a 5 gallon pot.

The regular warranty guarantees that your plants will arrive healthy and intact. You have to report an issue within 5 days for replacement. If it dies within 45 days we can offer a 50% store credit. The 1 year is definitely worth it. We replace the tree at no cost to you if it does not make it within 1 year:)
