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.

Forgot to mention

Adding to my review, I received the Ruby Falls Redbud which was about 3' tall. Was going to add photos, but can't see how to do that.


Quite pleased

I was somewhat concerned about spending so much on a plant, but after it came today I saw that I need not have worried. The tree came quickly after ordering In excellent condition and we planted it within a half hour after receiving it. If I had any complaint it would be that it seemed to be fuller on one side than the other. I'm sure it will fill in once it becomes established. Wish I had a bigger yard so that I could order more beautiful trees.

Love it

We bought 2 of these trees. Was in good condition. For some reason both of them had little foliage. The specification stated that it would be 4-5 ft. But both the trees were close to 6 ft. We planted them immediately upon receiving them. Its been a couple of weeks now and they are doing well.

tree looks OK but supports were mangled

The tree that came was > 5 feet, as promised-- but it seem to have been mangled-- not sure if that was in packing or transit. The bamboo stake that supported the tree was bent into a curve, the box had a huge fold/bend in it, and the pot was completely smushed. As a result, several branches were broken, and I couldn't leave the tree out of the ground for a day to adjust to being out of the box-- it was falling over on its own. I'm hoping that it survives the stress and is able to start growing (it has only been 5.5 days so can't tell yet).
