Be the first in your neighborhood to celebrate spring with an explosion of gorgeous rosy purple blooms. The Oklahoma or Texas Redbud tree is loaded with early blooms that bring life and color back to a barren winter landscape. Spring isn't the only season to admire your Oklahoma Redbud though!

The wide canopy boasts an umbrella shape that looks lovely even during winter's dormancy. Redbuds have showy, shiny, heart-shaped leaves that glisten in the sun. Young leaves emerge in spring, shimmering red and as they age turn a crisp, clean green. In fall the green fades to a lovely yellow that you won't want to miss. Red-purple seed pods add further interest in spring, turning brown in late summer and often staying through winter. The pink-purple blooms coat the Oklahoma Redbud tree throughout spring.

Gardeners of all levels LOVE this tree! It is compact, only growing between 15-25 feet wide and tall. The Oklahoma Redbud tree is deer and drought tolerant and an incredibly strong tree that stands up well to wind and ice. This flowering tree grows in full sun to part shade and is adaptable to any soil as long as it isn't saturated. Wildlife and birds love the seed pods. The blooms attract butterflies and hummingbirds.

Use the Oklahoma Redbud as a specimen tree, deck or patio tree. Redbuds look stunning in mass. Line both sides of a large walkway or driveway for a big WOW factor.

However you choose to add the Oklahoma Redbud tree to your landscape, you are sure to adore it for years to come!

How To Care

When planting your Oklahoma Redbud tree 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.

Landscape Ideas

Redbud Trees can be planted almost anywhere in your yard. They are one of our favorites!  

If you have a natural area off to the side of your home, plant a redbud tree there. Enjoy it sparkle with showy blooms in the spring.  Or plant 1 or 2 in your front or back yard.  They can be used as a focal point in the yard and they look even better with uplighting. Want a different color? Try the EasternRoyal White or Forest Pansy trees.

Oklahoma Redbud trees go very well with most other colors in the landscape.  Plant some kaleidoscope abelia under the tree for some beautiful yellow and gold colors. Junipers also work very well.  The blues and greens pair well with the purple pink florescent blooms! 

This tree is great for planting in a bed or at the side of your home. This Redbud looks great planted in a group of three in the back corner of your yard. Add some uplights and they will look great at night too!

Redbud Trees go just about anywhere. Just make sure that you can see it from your window, patio, or deck so you can watch it bloom and grow!

Oklahoma Redbud

Hi, service was prompt as was e-mail responses!� However, I guess I was expecting some buds... tress came in good shape. I would order again but ask more specifics beforehand. Best

Oh Em Gee!

Wow. I was a little skeptical spending the $$ for these, but after seeing the BOMBPROOF boxes they came in I became a believer. The trees were WAY bigger and FAR more healthy than I ever expected. Soaked them in buckets for about an hour and then plugged them right into the ground. They are doing fantastically, and I honestly could not be more thrilled. Will see how they settle in as I know it's getting a bit late for planting trees, but so far so good!

Pleasantly surprised

I have the worst green thumb of anyone...and I’m often able to **** even the toughest of plants and scrubs. I received this redbud and it was blooming the flowers at the time. A few day’s after planting it, I noticed that the flowers were disappearing and I began to worry. A quick search of Google-university cleared my concerns though, as I learned that the flowers only bloom for a little while in the spring anyway. I followed the planting and watering tips for this tree (often setting reminders in my phone) and I’ve watched it blossom unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. This thing is a beauty and I am super excited watch it’s journey over the next few months and years. I’d definitely purchase another Oklahoma Redbud in the future, and I’d absolutely purchase it from planting!!! Don’t hesitate!!! You’ll regret not purchasing this sooner!!!

Arrived 2 days after being shipped. Tree was approximately 5 1/2 ft tall with at least 5 or 6 branches leafed out and some purple flower buds showing. So far so good. The rest is up to me!
