2010-04-13 0086 Cercis canadensis L. (Eastern Redbud) ; Spring in Indiana Holliday Park Indianapolis Indiana

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.
