    About

    Known as the harbinger of Spring, the Eastern Redbud’s delicate blossoms and buds are one of the seasons most breathtaking displays. Spectacular rosy pink blossoms appear in dramatic fashion in April. But this tree’s beauty doesn’t end with its flowery show. It offers wonderfully colorful foliage year-round with reddish-brown leaves changing to dark green then to yellow in the Fall. In addition, its unique and irregular branching patterns combine with a trunk that commonly divides close to the ground to create a very handsome, spreading and often flat-topped crown. Even in Winter, covered with snow, the Eastern Redbud is stunning. This elegant species is a wonderful addition to any space.

    Wildlife

    The seeds are eaten by the northern bobwhite and a few songbirds, such as chickadees. The tree is also used for nesting sites and nesting materials and provides shelter for numerous birds and mammals.

    History

    Native to North America and Canada with cousins in Europe and Asia. First cultivated in 1811. The Spaniards noted Redbuds and made distinctions between the New World species and their cousins in the Mediterranean region in 1571.

    Well-earned designation as the State tree of Oklahoma. George Washington reported in his diary on many occasions about the beauty of the tree and spent many hours in his garden transplanting seedlings obtained from the nearby forest.

    Second purchase

    Mom's wishes were to be cremated, but no one wanted to keep the ashes in their house. The Living Urn was the perfect solution, and the funeral home ordered it for me. I love gardening and think Mom would appreciate living on through a plant. I get to see it every time I look out the back door. We put a small memorial stone near her purple azalea plant. When we cleaned out mom's house, we found my uncle's cremains. I ordered a second Living Urn, this time a white azalea, and planted it next to mom's plant. I like to think of the sister and brother together. Mom would have liked that.

    Great product

    We recommend this product, it’s a great way in some way of keeping those you love alive with such a beautiful symbol a a tree that lives. I also recommend buying the tree from the living urn I ordered a willow tree and it is already growing leaves. Thank you for what you do for those of us that lost someone.

    Pleased

    It worked just as described and we are very pleased. We had a local landscaper that planted a larger tree over the urn and now we have a lovely reminder of our mother.

    My mom

    This was a brand new experience for me, made more complicated because I only had 3 days at the location to fly up with the ashes, receive the tree, plant it, and wish it well before flying out again. Customer service was superb and I’m hopeful for a good long term outcome for my tree. Thanks so much! (And by the way, the urn for transportation is an added bonus—lovely and useful)
