Carolina Sweetheart™ Redbud

(Cercis canadensis ‘NCCC1’ PPAF)

" "" "" "

Nothing else on the planet like this. Starts out with pink flower in the spring. Then the new leaves emerge purple, but over time, gain various shades of white, green, and hot pink. Makes Coleus look drab in comparison. Eventually, leaves turn green in the summer.
