When Is The Best Time To Plant A Redbud Tree


How tall can a redbud grow?

Redbuds are fast-growing trees that bloom in the second year after planting. If you want an even larger tree, plant more than one. Redbuds will reach up to 50 feet tall and 12 feet wide, with trunks 2 to 3 inches thick. Plant redbuds in spring or summer; they prefer full sun and well-drained soil throughout their lifetime (they don’t like wet roots). They also need some protection from winds of at least 35 mph—you may not always see them because of the structure they create as part of the forest canopy!
