Product Description

One of the Only Tri-Color Redbuds Available

The Carolina Sweetheart™ Redbud Tree is in a league of its own, offering a vivid rainbow in early summer, with new leaves and layer upon layer of vibrant hues. And unlike its more common family member, the Eastern Redbud, it provides the advantages of Redbud you enjoy in a whole new color palette.

Springtime ushers in bright pink blooms, with new leaves coming in purple. Over time, the Carolina's foliage transitions to varying shades of green, white and hot pink.

This dimensional hue takes the Carolina Sweetheart™ Redbud to the next level. So, whether you are planting this tree alone as a focal point in your front yard or in your garden amongst others, you'll have the yard of the year.

But when you order your Carolina Redbud from Brighter Blooms, you get a reliable, proven performer with a deep, well-developed root system.

Oftentimes, our larger Carolina Sweetheart™ Redbuds can bloom as soon as the first year.

Don’t hesitate to buy yours today. This is a newer variety with unmatched color that tends to sell out quickly...so don't wait - get your Carolina Sweetheart™ Redbud Tree today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Select an area with well-drained soil and full sun to partial sun (4 to 6 hours of direct sunlight with some afternoon shade).

Dig a hole twice as wide as the diameter and as deep as your tree’s root ball. Place your tree, backfill the soil, and water to settle the tree’s roots. Finally, spread 3 to 4 inches of mulch over the planting site to conserve moisture.

2. Watering: During the first year, water your tree about once or twice weekly. If you’re not sure when to water, check the surrounding soil to about 3 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it’s time to water your tree.

After the first year, your Redbud can thrive on rainfall alone, but we recommend that you continue to check the soil. The soil should remain consistently moist about 3 inches down.

3. Fertilizing: In early spring, apply compost or a complete fertilizer, such as 5-10-5. Spread evenly around the root zone of the plant according to the label instructions.

4. Pruning: Prune the tree in early summer after the tree is done blooming. Begin by removing any larger lower branches and branches that cross over each other or rub together.

Cut off the branches close to the trunk without leaving any stubs. If several branches need to be removed, remove gradually over a few months. In late winter, prune any dead or damaged wood and remove any shoots that are growing from the bottom of the trunk.
