You’ll admire your Burgundy Hearts® Eastern Redbud tree when its delicate lavender-pink blossoms line the branches in spring, but you’ll fall in love when its perfectly heart-shaped, deep crimson leaves unfold like so many Valentine’s Day cards a bit later. In summer, this small ornamental tree will continue to delight as the older leaves turn deep green while new burgundy foliage keeps expanding, creating an interesting bi-color effect. Plant Burgundy Hearts® in your entryway garden to sweetly greet your guests at the front door or plant it around back where its arching canopy may shade a romantic seating area for two. Pollinators will fall for this native flowering tree, too!

The Story

Redbuds are red-hot! This classic American tree has been reinvented into all sorts of intriguing colors and forms in recent years, and people can’t get enough of them. Burgundy Hearts® is a fine new addition to the collection that is especially valued for durable foliage that doesn’t scorch in hot sun like that of the former red-leaved standard, ‘Forest Pansy.’ Burgundy Hearts® Redbud was discovered at Greenleaf Nursery in Oklahoma in 2000. It’s not a hybrid tree—just a lucky random variation that happened to occur in one plant among a crop of 3,000 normal green seedlings that spring.

The Details

Burgundy Hearts® Redbud or Forest Pansy? That is the question. These two similar purple-leaved trees are often compared to each other, but there are distinctions. The biggest difference is that while Burgundy Heart’s leaves turn green as they age, new red foliage continues to emerge throughout the season, making for a quirky two-tone look that isn’t apparent in Forest Pansy.

How to Grow

To bring out the most vibrant color in this tree’s namesake foliage, give it a site in full sun. As for water needs, Burgundy Hearts® will have some degree of drought tolerance once established, but the leaves will stay healthier-looking if your tree is irrigated during dry spells and not made to fend for itself. It will not abide “wet feet,” however. Growth is moderate and pruning is seldom necessary, though this tree responds well to pruning should you choose to shape it or give it a little nip and tuck.
