A perfect spring flowering tree for smaller landscapes, this phenomenal new hybrid raises the bar. Lustrous, dark purple foliage is similar to Forest Pansy, but with Texas Redbud in its genes, 'Merlot' offers excellent drought tolerance and thicker, glossier leaves that stand up to summer heat.
Growing just 5-6' tall with an elegant, weeping habit, this redbud is perfect for small gardens, lawns, woodland gardens or naturalized areas. Attractive red-purple flowers bloom profusely in early spring. Large, heart-shaped leaves add interest through the seasons.
