Cercis canadensis Northern Herald® – Eastern Redbud – 7-Gallon


A selection from North Dakota State University in Bismarck, North Dakota. It has a 40-year history of winter hardiness in the zone 4a location (winter lows of -30°F to -25°F). This makes Northern Herald® the best redbud for growing throughout the Catskills, even at higher elevations. Young plants occasionally have some tip dieback after severe winters, but mature trees outgrow the problem – a thick layer of mulch atop the root zone for the first few years helps as well.
