Finally, a purple redbud at just the right size for garden planting. Garden Gems™ Amethyst Redbud is the first compact redbud with dark purple leaves. A cross between the dense, compact Ace of Hearts Redbud and the purple-leaved Ruby Falls Redbud, this small and stunning tree combines the best of its parents. Garden Gems™ flowers in early spring, glittering with blooms before its folliage appears. In summer, the leaves hold their amethyst color through the heat. This new hybrid attracts pollinators, and creates the perfect conversation piece in a small landscape, a comforting presence in the reading garden, or a lovely anchor point near a home.
