'Alley Cat' Eastern Redbud has foliage liberally splashed with white, and its striking variegation is stable and scorch resistant. The dark pink pea-shaped flowers emerge in April just before the leaves begin to show in shades of copper pink and soft green. As the foliage matures, the white emerges and makes a lovely contrast to the green.
A spectacular variety that is showy all season: magenta flowers held tightly on bare branches in early spring; deep green leaves splashed with white and gray-green in summer; yellow fall color; a great small ornamental tree for specimen use
Alley Cat Redbud has hot pink pea-like flowers along the branches in mid spring before the leaves. It has attractive white-variegated deciduous dark green foliage with hints of grayish green which emerges chartreuse in spring. The heart-shaped leaves are highly ornamental and turn an outstanding yellow in the fall. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.
Alley Cat Redbud is a deciduous tree with a shapely oval form. Its relatively coarse texture can be used to stand it apart from other landscape plants with finer foliage.
This is a relatively low maintenance tree, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. Deer don't particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats.
