Ruby Falls Redbud

Cercis canadensis 'Ruby Falls' PPAF: A Purple-leafed Weeping Dwarf Redbud! Brilliant spring blooms and heart-shaped foliage that won't green out. Compact at 6 to 8 feet, it's ideal for small-space gardens and accents. Bloom Season Early Spring - Late Spring Habit Weeping Zone 6 - 8 Plant Height 6 ft - 8 ft Plant Width 4 ft - 6 ft. Light Requirements Full Sun, Part Shade Moisture Requirements Moist, well-drained

Cercis 'Forest Pansy' can reach heights of 10m, but if you prune it, it'll will be more shrubby and perfect for small gardens. Note that we are cheating a bit here - Forest Pansy is an eastern redbud, not the California native western redbud, but we wanted this illustration of the extraordinary seasonal changes of cercis. One difference is the purple leaves. Either redbud will have amazing colour change as the seasons progress. Cercis is listed among LA MWD's fire resistant plants.
