Redbud is a deciduous tree which means it has leaves that change colors throughout the year
What is Redbud Tree?
The redbud tree is a deciduous tree which means it has leaves that change colors throughout the year. The leaves change colors in the spring, summer, and fall. In contrast, evergreen trees do not change colors throughout the year.
How To Plant Your Redbud Tree
1. Dig a hole for your redbud tree, two feet deep and two feet wide.
2. Place the seed in the bottom of your hole with the pointy side down and cover it with soil.
3. Fill the rest of the hole with soil, making sure to pack it down firmly so that you don't disturb any roots when you water your tree later on.
4. Water thoroughly, and then wait until your new redbud tree is well-established before adding more water.

How to Care For Your Redbud Tree
The redbud tree is shallow-rooted and will need to be planted in well-drained soil. That may be a problem if you have limited space, but some options help combat this. You could dig out the area where the new tree will sit or line the bottom of your pot with pea gravel (which is much cleaner than dirt). You would then fill the pot with good quality soil and water it well. When planting your redbud tree, make sure it's in the sunniest spot possible to encourage growth. Redbuds do not like wet feet, so make sure to keep them away from wading pools or other standing water that can lead to root rot.
