Originating from North America, these trees are grown for visually stunning pink and purple flowers bloom every spring. Redbuds are a well-known contributor to wildlife diversity as butterflies, which molt early in the year, flock to them as a nectar source. Chickadees and other songbirds will typically seek edible seeds and nesting materials.
Redbud trees exude a high degree of beauty year-round. They possess heart-shaped leaves, which usually grow after their flowers have bloomed. Leaves begin as red-colored and then change to green in the summer and yellow in the fall. Seed pods that grow on the tree develop in clusters and last throughout the winter.
These trees are a common choice for landscaping. They are relatively easy to maintain, tolerate clay-laden soils, add tremendous aesthetic value, and take only about four years from first being planted for their signature flowers to bloom. The multi-trunked trees can be planted as a standalone feature or in small groups.
Many Redbud parts are also edible. Their flowers have a slightly sour taste and are often used as salad additions or pickled. Similarly, flower buds can be preserved for later use compared to capers in terms of flavor and texture. As redbuds are a pea family member, seed pods can be consumed, with sauteing preferred.
