Redbud is an evergreen shrub with delicate leaf shapes and beautiful fall color. It’s a great addition to any planting where it may not get much direct sunlight, but its colorful leaves and red flowers will bloom year-round. Redbuds can grow quickly and can tolerate partial shade. Here are some benefits to planting redbud seedlings in your restoration plantings.
Redbud is a versatile plant that can grow in full sun to partial shade. This makes it a good choice for planting in a sunny forest area, such as an understory or canopy planting.
They can also be planted as ground covers, so long as they are not exposed to full sun. For example, put them under rosebushes or where you want to slow down the growth of lesser hardwoods. For example, plant redbud under a weeping beech (Fagus grandifolia)
Redbuds have beautiful fall color, and they add spice to your forest all year round. They are a food source for many birds, and they are also thought to bring luck to those who make wreaths from them during the holiday season.
Beekeepers love redbud trees. They provide a source of honey (especially black honey, often referred to as “medicinal honey”), and native bumblebees pollinate the flowers. Learn about this fascinating species of tree in the article All About Redbuds.
Not only do birds love redbuds, they see them as a source of food. Redbuds have high fat and protein seeds—birds can eat them whole or crack the seed pods open and feast on the seeds inside. The best time to put out bird feeders is during fall, when you will have a much greater variety of birds visiting your yard. The plant also has bright-red fruits that birds and other wildlife often enjoy. Learn about birds in your area using the All About Birds interactive tool.
Planting redbuds in your restoration plantings are a great way to bring the beauty of fall’s leaves into the year-round landscape. They also attract a variety of wildlife, and they provide food for birds and other animals. Planting these trees will not only help restore your natural areas but will add variety to your everyday scenery as well.
