The eastern redbud’s beautiful blossoms are one of the season’s most famous displays,
making it known as the harbinger of spring. But it doesn’t end there. Unique and irregular
branching patterns combine with a trunk that commonly divides close to the ground to create
a very handsome, spreading and often flat-topped crown. Then the leaves change to a bright
yellow before falling. Even in winter, covered with snow, the eastern redbud is stunning.
