Texas redbud is a small ornamental tree that blooms in the spring. The flowers appear before leaves emerge and can be quite spectacular. The flowers are pink to magenta. Texas redbud is smaller and more drought tolerant than Eastern Redbud, and its leaves are smaller, thicker and more leathery. It comes as a single or multi-trunk and can grow to about 12-20 ft.

Texas redbud does best as an understory tree, protected from the harsh evening sun in the summer, but can handle full sun exposure as well. It can be planted any time but the ideal time for planting trees is fall, winter or early spring.

Texas redbud can be used as a focal point or planted in groupings.
