The Story

The Pink Heartbreaker Weeping Redbud is an extra-special selection of Eastern Redbud, a cherished small native tree that lights up roadsides and forest edges in spring with pretty lavender-pink flowers. Pink Heartbreaker was a chance seedling with a weeping habit found growing in a crop of regular Redbud Trees at the nursery of Bower & Branch’s founder, Don Eaton. Don moved the unusual little tree to his home landscape in the summer of 2002, but the move was traumatic, and it barely survived. Only one branch leafed out the following spring. Fortunately, Don was able to propagate the tree from that lone branch. His wife Kathy named the tree ‘Pink Heartbreaker’ for its heart-shaped leaves and for the fact that it had very nearly broken their hearts. Now we add heart-shaped branching to the heart theme!

The Details

Shaping trees into various forms is an ancient craft that mimics what happens in nature when trees meet an obstacle and must grow in another direction. If done carefully, when a tree is young pliable, it does no harm to the tree. We’re pleased to keep this fascinating tree-shapingtradition alive in the creation of our exclusive espaliered Pink Heartbreaker Redbud Heart Trellis Tree.

How to Grow

Pink Heartbreaker Redbud is a tree that’s naturally adapted to the climate of much of the eastern U.S., and it isn’t difficult to grow. It will flourish in sun or shade, though light shade is better in hot-summer regions. It likes regular water, but isn’t a water hog, and once established it can survive short periods of drought. Don’t overwater it, however, as Redbuds don’t care for “wet feet.” Your Pink Heartbreaker Redbud Heart Trellis Tree will need regular pruning to keep its unique heart-shaped habit, so don’t be afraid to trim it as needed. Our growers are standing by at grower@bowerandbranch.com to answer your questions if you need further guidance on how to care for this one-of-a-kind tree.
