The Merlot Redbud is a cross between the ‘Forest Pansy’ and the texensis ‘Texas White’ Redbuds. This cross helps with better overall heat resistance, helping the tree to do better with summer stress. The cross also helps to create the beautiful deep purple foliage that is found on the leaves. Merlot also has a dense, compact form, making it an ideal plant for smaller landscapes. It has bright lavender-pink flowers that bloom in the early spring. Here at Creekside, we currently have the Merlot Redbud available for sale in a 15 gallon size. Be sure to get yours today, while supplies last!
