Ruby Falls Redbud | Cercis canadensis

February 10, 2019 Dave Marciniak 0 Comments

I just started planting Ruby Falls redbuds two years ago. We were working on a pond and landscape installation in Sperryville and I needed some special trees. I was walking the wholesale nursery with my sales rep when, in the words of Jim Croce, “she caught my eye, then put it back.” I was in love!

New pics coming this spring!

Ruby Falls redbud is so named because the deep red, heart-shaped leaves appear to cascade down the trunk on weeping branches. It’s a stunning tree.

Online, it says that Ruby Falls redbuds top out at around 6 ft high and 4 ft wide. I have a hard time believing that, as the ones we planted were just about that size, but we’ll see. I say, use them where you would want a smaller specimen tree, but leave a little extra room. Just in case.

Do you want to buy a Ruby Falls redbud in Virginia?
