Wholesale Cercis canadensis Nurseries

Known as the 'Forest Pansy' and the 'Redbud', Cercis canadensis with its heart shaped leaves is attractive as a foliage plant alone.

However the masses of deep pink flowers in spring that appear before the foliage in spring make this a standout spring flowering plant.

Varieties

One of the best small trees native to the eastern states a number of varieties are offered by wholesale growers.
  • Sought after is the weeping form variously called Cercis canadensis 'Lavender Twist' and 'Covey'. Growers will stake and support the main stem until it reaches adesired height, they will then let the plant resume its natural weeping habit.
  • Cercis canadensis 'Flame' will reach around 20ft in height, double flowered and it does not set seed pods as readily as some others.
  • One of the more unique is Cercis canadensis 'alba' with its white flowers. Another white flowerin cultivar is 'Royal White'
  • Cercis canadensis vat texensis 'Traveller' probably does not recieve the attention it deserves. A weeping or mounding form with good glossy leathery leaves. Reaches around 5 - 6 ft in height and hardy to USDA zone 6. Maybe the best weeping form for the combination of flowers and foliage.

Excellent in full sun to part shade, these are a small growing tree.

Wholesale growers offer plants are B & B, Potted specimens and bare rooted plants in winter.
