Cercis canadensis, or commonly known as Eastern Redbud, grows mainly in the Eastern half of the United States. It can be found in USDA zones 4-9 (hardy up to -30F), thrives in full sun to partial shade. The redbud can grow up to 20ft (6m) tall, and is tolerant of neutral to acidic soil of pH 5.1-7.5. The magenta buds appear in late March and can last until May. Although it is mainly used as an ornamental tree, it grows quite well in the wild.
