Cotton Candy™ Redbud

Cercis canadensis 'Sjo'

This selection brightens the spring landscape with unique pale pink flowers, touched with lavender striations covering the bare branches.  Once the flowers have passed, clean medium green foliage is held until fading to a yellow fall color.  An excellent native selection for specimens or large groupings.

Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips:

For new plantings, dig a hole one and a half times wider than the plant's container; place plant in hole, keeping the top of the root ball ground level; and back fill with dirt. Water thoroughly and then mulch around the base to conserve moisture and reduce weeds. New plantings require more frequent watering than established plants. Wind, temperature and soil are factors to consider in watering. Feed plants in early spring and again in early fall with an all-purpose fertilizer, following label instructions.
