The Royal White Redbud is also a more compact tree than the Eastern Redbud. These trees are effective as a single specimen, in groupings, in a shrub border, and especially nice in woodland and naturalized type situations. It has large heart shaped leaves during the summer, and long seedpods in the fall. Red Bud trees have a yellow fall color. It has low water requirements and displays a high tolerance to salt and alkali soils. Thousands of white flowers appear in the spring before leaves appear. It can be used in full sun to part shade. Does well in many soil types, except permanently wet soils. The seed pods attract wildlife.
