Hey Bill, when you come to the Rutgers winter classes next year, we'll be sure to teach you, Cercis canadensis, Eastern Redbud. it's a great native tree that is available in white flowering forms as well as the standard lavender, a weeping form, covey and a couple of additional leaf colors, being gold and purple.

One of the cultivars with purple leaves is "Forest Pansy." Because of the leaf color it is just beautiful even after the flowers.

Redbud grows native around here on very shallow soil on top of our limestone base usually at the edge of woodlands.

Bill, knowing how to identify it, is step one. Now the fun of knowing what it does, when it has interest and where it will fit and thrive becomes the true passion.

The winter short course program at Rutgers is a widely varied, intense group of landscape information and instructors that attracts students from New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New York & Connecticut regularly, while the turf program gets students from around the world.

Any seminar where there is someone that knows more about a subject than you, not always the presenter, is a worthwhile use of your time. Taking advantage of the networking opportunities is another benefit.

Thanks for the extra info. I appreciate any and all new information.

Beautiful when they bloom and vibrant in color. However, it is a poor and short-lived species. Prone to cankers, insect damage and splitting in colder climates.

when it doubt, ask a certified arborist(me!) and they most times can get your info straight.
