Pink Tree Flower

Pink Tree Flower

‘Oklahoma’ Redbud is a deciduous tree, native to southwestern North America including Texas, which reaches 30 to 40 feet in height with a 15 to 20-foot width, and grows slowly into a rounded or vase shape. Young trees are a bit irregularly-shaped and benefit from some training and pruning to form an upright, more uniform crown. The incredibly shiny,thick, leathery, dark green leaves have rounded or notched tips, are two to three inches wide, and turn yellow before dropping in the fall. The deep pink to red flowers appear in profusion up and down the tree limbs in springtime, well before the leaves begin to emerge, creating probably the best Redbud display.The four-inch-long seedpods which follow are a lovely
purple color and remain on the tree well into the winter.
