Cercis canadensis, commonly called eastern redbud, is a deciduous, often multi-trunked understory tree with a rounded crown and a slightly larger spread. It is particularly noted for its stunning pea-like rose-purple edible flowers which bloom profusely on bare branches in early spring before the foliage emerges. Native to Ohio, it is found in open woodlands, thickets, woodland margins, limestone glades and along rocky streams and bluffs. Flowers bloom in clusters of 4-10 and are followed by flattened leguminous bean-like dry seedpods that mature to brown in summer. Each pod has 6-12 seeds. Pods may remain on the tree into winter. Leaves turn pale yellow to greenish-yellow in fall. Used as a specimen or small groups, in lawns, shrub borders, woodland margins, or along patios. Makes a great street tree or lawn tree. Attractive in naturalized settings
