The heart-shaped leaves shimmer in the sun. Small, low maintenance, drought tolerant, and adaptable, these beautiful trees are perfect for any yard.

how to plant rosebud trees

How to Plant Redbud Trees

Dig a hole about twice the width of the root ball and not quite as deep as it is tall. Place your tree level in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the existing soil line and backfill with soil. Water deeply until the ground is fully saturated. Apply 1 to 2 inches of mulch to help retain soil moisture, protect the roots, and reduce weeds. Extend the mulch mound a couple inches beyond the tree’s canopy. Water daily for the first week and 1 to 3 times weekly for the first 2 months until your plant is established. Be sure to water deeply with a hose to help the roots grow deep.

How Fast do Redbud Trees Grow?

Standard Redbud Trees, like the Eastern Redbud and the Oklahoma Redbud, grow fairly fast with growth rates from 1 to 2 feet per year. The dwarf Rising Sun Redbud, despite its smaller stature, maintains the rapid growth rate of its parent tree, the Eastern Redbud. Other dwarf redbuds have a slower growth rate.

How to Care for Redbud Trees

Redbuds are very easy to maintain. They tolerate full sun to part shade and are adaptable to any well drained soil. After establishment, Redbuds are drought tolerant. In extended periods of drought this tree will benefit from a weekly deep watering. Fertilize in early spring with a balanced, slow release fertilizer.
