Description

The Forest Pansy Redbud Trees job is never really done. Beautiful color could be seen for more than a few weeks or months with this medium sized, compact tree. If you are looking for that tree to add a little sparkle to your landscape, try the Forest Pansy Redbud.

Unlike other Redbuds, the Forest Pansy produces a wine color purple leaf in the spring after the flowers have faded. Clusters of tiny, rose-purple, pea-like flowers bloom on gray branches that stretch out vertically for about 3 weeks in early spring (March-April), before the foliage emerges.

Flowers are darker and more purplish than other ones that you see. Heart-shaped leaves open bright reddish-purple and gradually mature to a more subdued purple as summer approaches.

The leaves of the Redbud often turn green by this point. Spurts of purple are possible as the season goes on. The leaves of the Forest Pansy then turn yellow to orange or purple-red as the fall season arrives.

The Forest Pansy Redbud has a rapid growth rate. At maturity you could expect it to be between 20-30 feet tall and wide. Though they do best in light, rich soil, Forest Pansy’s will adapt to any soil (clay, sand, alkaline etc.). They are both drought and pollution tolerant. In order to grow and produce beautiful flowers, the Forest Pansy Redbud does require sunlight. The more sunlight the Forest Pansy has the better.

How To Care

When planting your Forest Pansy Redbud be sure you have the right location and conditions for your new tree to thrive. Spring and fall are ideal times to plant. However, if you avoid extreme temperatures you can plant almost any time of the year.

Redbuds are very easy to maintain. These trees tolerate full sun, part sun, and part shade and are adaptable to any soil as long as it isn't saturated. Water your new Redbud deeply about twice a week for the first couple months. After establishment, this redbud is drought tolerant. In extended drought periods this tree will benefit from a weekly deep watering. Add a layer of 2 of mulch around the base of the tree about the size of the tree canopy. Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease. Fertilize in early spring and when planting to give your tree a boost. Choose a balanced, slow release fertilizer. Redbuds don't generally require pruning, but if needed, prune immediately after blooming has ceased to remove any dead, dying, crowded or crossed branches. Pruning in winter is likely to cause bloom loss.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, watering and fertilization are the keys to your success. Avoid problems with Borer insects by ensuring your tree remains free from damage, especially from lawn equipment. Mulching helps to keep weeds at bay which eliminates the need to use lawn equipment near your tree. Borers look for a hole or weak spot to penetrate. Scale is an immobile insect that can affect almost any tree. You can treat this pest with horticultural oil. Be sure to coat the entire tree.

Tree not doing well

It's been about a month since we've planted our tree and I must say it doesn't seem to be doing well. The leaves are drying and turning brown and we are not noticing any new life since planting. How do we take it vantage of the warranty?

Easy and fast

Tree came in a box which I immediately opened and I watered the tree. I planted it a couple days later and it seems to be taking nicely.
