Exceptional Appearance

The Cercis canadensis 'Lavender Twist,' also known as the American Redbud, is an exceptional sight due to its weeping growth habit and its purple-pink flowers that bloom on bare wood.


Blooming Pattern

In spring, before the leaves appear on the Cercis canadensis 'Lavender Twist,' this tree blooms with clusters of purple-pink flowers. These bloom abundantly on the still bare branches of the tree.


Leaf Shape and Color

After blooming, perfectly shaped, heart-shaped leaves appear on the tree. These start out light green and gradually turn dark green over the course of the season.

In autumn, the leaves change to yellow hues before falling from the tree, revealing the 'Lavender Twist's' weeping bare branches.


Growth Habit

The Cercis canadensis 'Lavender Twist' is a unique tree due to its weeping growth habit and flowering on bare branches, making it a tree suitable for any garden.



The 'Lavender Twist' Redbud is also easy to maintain, requiring pruning only if the branches become too long or thick.



The Redbud tree thrives in almost any soil type, provided it is rich in nutrients, but it prefers a somewhat dry location. The Cercis canadensis 'Lavender Twist' does not like to be in overly wet soil and will not flourish well in such conditions.


How to plant the tree?

  1. Determine the final location of the tree and ensure it is free from cables, debris, old plants, and other obstacles that may hinder the tree's growth.
  2. Dig a planting hole that is twice the width of the root ball. Loosen the soil at the bottom of the planting hole and mix the excavated soil with (organic) garden soil or planting substrate.
  3. Adjust the planting hole to the height where the root ball fits and firmly press the soil.
  4. Fill the planting hole with water and wait for it to settle. Check if the root ball is sufficiently moist.
  5. Place the tree or plant in the planting hole. It is extremely important that the tree is not planted too deep, as this can cause root rot.
  6. Insert a tree stake or bamboo stake firmly into the ground on the side of the tree where the most wind comes from.
  7. Now, place the watering ring or create a mound of soil around the tree so that water can seep into the ground.
