Eastern Redbud


The Eastern Redbud tree is a deciduous shrub or small tree. It is often planted as an ornamental because of its beautiful pink flowers in the spring and multiple trunk look. People also can eat the flowers and bark for natural healing properties. This species has some wildlife value. It is also a nectar source for bees and butterflies, butterfly larvae, and its seed pods are enjoyed by songbirds, small mammals and game birds. The mature redbud can grow to about 16-40 feet in height.
