Lavender Twist Weeping Redbud Tree FAQ

When should a Lavender Twist Weeping Redbud be pruned?

It is best to prune any variety of redbud tree in the spring after the flowers have finished blooming.

How long do Lavender Twist Redbud blooms last?

The pink tinted lavender blooms last for approximately 3 to 4 weeks.

When should I fertilize a weeping redbud?

A slow-release fertilizer should be applied in early spring for best results.

Caring for Lavender Twist Weeping Redbud Tree

Apply a general purpose fertilizer in early spring prior to the first blooms of the season. These hardy trees are drought tolerant and don’t need excessive amounts of water. The low maintenance Lavender Twist can be kept in a container but only in zones 7-9, as the container lacks imperative insulation needed to protect the root system during the colder winter months of zones 5 and 6. Avoid moving the container into a heated area during the winter months. These trees rely on the cold winter temperatures to set the flower buds for the upcoming spring.

Planting

Locations with full morning sun, afternoon shade, and a moist well-draining soil are ideal accommodations for these easily maintained trees. Lavender Twist Redbuds are not easily transplanted so select a spot in your landscape where this magnificent variety will flourish for years. For optimal growth, additional Lavender Twist Redbud trees should be spaced at a minimum of 10 feet apart.

Watering

This weeping redbud tree thrives with weekly waterings. This should be increased if your area experiences lengthy dry spells.

Fertilizing

A general purpose fertilizer should be applied in early spring prior to the first open blooms.

Maintenance

Pruning is not necessary unless a specific shape or look is desired. The ideal time to prune any unwanted branches or growth is in the spring just after the flowers have transitioned to the beautiful heart-shaped green foliage. Branches that are growing directly above or below one another should be pruned back to about a 1/2 inch from the trunk to promote an aesthetically pleasing form. Any other stems can be cut back to a bud, branch, or the trunk, ensuring that a 1/2 inch stem is left on the trunk.
