A standout from other purple-leaved redbud buds with an extremely deep purple coloration almost to the point the leaves appear black. Reaches 20 feet tall and 25 feet wide. Lavender flowers appear in spring before the foliage.
For new plantings, dig a hole one and a half times wider than the plant's container; place plant in hole, keeping the top of the root ball ground level; and back fill with dirt. Water thoroughly and then mulch around the base to conserve moisture and reduce weeds. New plantings require more frequent watering than established plants. Wind, temperature and soil are factors to consider in watering. Feed plants in early spring and again in early fall with an all-purpose fertilizer, following label instructions.
