Cercis canadensis/ eastern redbud
Eastern redbud is a deciduous understory tree with a rounded crown that typically matures to 20-30' tall with a slightly larger spread. In April and May, many neighborhoods are brightened by the purplish-pink flowers lining the dark branches of redbuds before their leaves open. This Chicago native plant works especially well among evergreens that contrast with its color and shelter it from intense sunlight.
These trees are between 28" to 34" tall.
