How To Care

When planting your Royal White 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.

The Royal White Redbud is 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

White Royal 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.  

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! Want a different color? Try the EasternForest Pansy or Oklahoma Redbud trees.

Royal White 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!

Royal White Redbud

I love the size of the tree for the price. I saw one of these in NYC on the Upper East Side and fell in love with them. It came in a large box in a 3 gallon pot packed perfectly. I'll definitely buy hard to find trees from them again.
