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 2-3 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 turn green by this point. Spurts of purple are possible as the season goes on. The leaves of the Forest Pansy then turn yellow 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 ft tall, with a 15-20 ft spread. 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.

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.

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.

Forest Pansy part 2

First Forest Pansy Redbud did not bloom or leaf. . I wrote to Planting tree and was promised a replacement at no cost as soon as one was available. They kept their word and second tree arrived leafed out and perfect. Now in the ground . Very pleased.

Wonderful Experience

This was my first time purchasing trees on line and from The Planting Tree. I was nervous, we were investing a lot of money on three forest pansy redbud trees to be shipped cross-country! The trees arrived healthy, lunch, undamaged, and lovingly packed in very sturdy and secure boxes. I will definitely be giving them more business. I can't say enough great things about the service, pricing, and positive overall experience. Buying on line and shipping to my door also saved my car the mess from in town nursery pickup. And, the savings of my personal time was worth its weight in gold too. I highly recommend this retailer!!

High hopes for the future

It is amazing to get a tree in a box! The tree is beautiful, great leaves. It arrived in good health, only one broken branch. It seems to be thriving in its new home. Only complaint is its size. I paid a bit more to get a 6-7’ tree. I am 5’ tall. That is the hight of the tree. And its trunk is sooo thin, and the branches are very short, I guess to fit into the narrow box it arrived in. Im hoping for a big growth spurt this summer. Overall, I would recommend this site
