Buy Cercis canadensis 'Alley Cat' redbud 'Alley Cat': Variegated foliage adds a bright splash of colour

This tree is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: slow
  • Flowering period: March to April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The season of interest kicks off in early spring, when the bare branches of this Eastern redbud is studded with small clusters of rich pink flowers. The appearance of these however is quickly followed by the heart-shaped foliage, which often emerges with a faint pink flush. It soon reveals however its stunning green and cream variegations, which offer a bright splash of colour throughout the summer before turning yellow in autumn.

  • Garden care: Plant in their final location when young as they resent being transplanted. Requires minimal pruning. Remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches in late autumn or winter. When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly.
