How To Care

When planting your Ruby Falls 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.

Landscape Ideas

The Ruby Falls Redbud tree can be planted anywhere in your yard.  They are a gorgeous focal point and look amazing at night with uplighting.  This weeping redbud compliments just about any color in the landscape with its wine-purple foliage.  Plant some kaleidoscope abelia or golden euonymus under your tree for some vivid yellow and gold colors.  Junipers also work beautifully; the blues and greens pair well with the lavender blooms and the deep green and plum colored leaves.  Plant in a cottage, rock, or zen garden for a peaceful getaway at your own home! If you love Redbud trees, you may also be a fan of our Rising SunForest PansyOklahoma and Royal White Redbud trees.
