Lavender Twist® Redbud

Description

Lavender Twist® Redbud, also known as Cercis canadensis ‘Covey’ Lavender Twist or simply Lavender Twist. It’s prized for its weeping habit and stunning lavender-pink flowers that bloom profusely along its cascading branches in early spring.

This cultivar typically grows to be a small tree, reaching a height of about 5 to 10 feet with a similar spread. Its distinctive weeping form makes it an excellent choice for small gardens, patios, or as a focal point in the landscape.

Like other varieties of Eastern Redbud, Lavender Twist prefers well-draining soil and full sun to partial shade. It is relatively low-maintenance once established and is generally resistant to pests and diseases. Pruning may be necessary to maintain its weeping form and remove any dead or damaged branches.

Overall, Lavender Twist Redbud is prized for its unique appearance, vibrant spring flowers, and compact size, making it a popular choice for gardens and landscapes where space is limited.
