Heart-shaped leaves emerge dark-purple to make a lush appearance and hold their color, much more reliably than the classic 'Forest Pansy' before turning green in late summer. A Redbud hybrid bred by  Dr. Dennis Werner and introduced in 2009 by North Carolina State University in conjunction with the JC Ralston Arboretum.  Expect a tree that can handle a wide variety of soils while needing less water thanks to the addition of C. texensis.  Purported to have extra disease resistance.

Mature size 15-20 ft T & W 


Minimum temperature: 0º F
