This fabulous new redbud is giving many plant lovers a big case of Gotta-Have-It! The leaf colors are spectacular, with new growth starting apricot, graduating to vivid gold, and finally to bright green. And if you water in dry spells, it will keep flushing the tangerine new growth over the entire summer into fall! Its tough constitution lets it withstand drought, heat, poor soil and pollution, while the leaves are impervious to sunburn. Excellent for wildlife, too – in spring, butterflies and early-arriving hummingbirds love the nectar of the small, bright pink flowers. Later, the seeds attract a number of songbirds, including goldfinches, quail, and the occasional chickadee or cardinal. Zones 5-9. Cercis canadensis 'JN2' PP21451. Full Sun to Partial Shade.
