Pink Heartbreaker Weeping Redbud will surely win your heart like it has ours with its flowing form, its sweet heart-shaped foliage, and its perky pink flowers which hug the branches in spring. Growers love Pink Heartbreaker because its strong branching habit makes it less likely to get broken up during shipping than the older weeping Redbud selection, Lavender Twist (a.k.a. ‘Covey’). If errant soccer balls occasionally find their way into your landscape beds, then you’ll appreciate that strong branching, too! You’ll also love Pink Heartbreaker’s super-fast growth rate and its compact size. There are very few specimen trees that grow fast but don’t get too big, and this is one of them.

The Story

At Eaton Farms in 2002, in a field of ordinary Redbuds, one chance seedling marched to its own tune—a lone weeper among uprights.  Now, July is a terrible time to dig a tree, but the field was being cleared for replanting, so Don Eaton moved the weeper to his home.  It barely survived.  Only one branch leafed out the following spring, but fortunately, that was enough to get the plant into production.  Don’s wife Kathy named the tree Pink Heartbreaker®, because it had nearly died and broken their hearts.

The Details

Don't mess around with this Pink Heartbreaker! An excellent weeping form of Redbud, this unique tree has a vigorous growth habit and an improved weeping habit over other weeping Redbuds. The vibrant pink pea-like flowers appear in early spring before the heart-shaped leaves. Introduced by Bower & Branch in 2009. Plant one today and you will have the most incredible specimen tree around!

How to Grow

Pink Heartbreaker® has breezed through some tough weather trials.  Early on, the tree was sent to Tennessee for production, and it happened to be subjected to a very late 20°F freeze there, as well as two years of both prolonged drought and record heat.  It sailed through all hardships.  You’ll find it to be one of the most trouble-free trees in your landscape.  Give it sun or light shade and well-drained soil, and stand back.  Just don’t try to dig it up in July and move it once it’s settled in!
