Red Bud Blossom Balls - this beautiful little tree blooms not only on its branches, but also right on the trunk itself. This occurs most often in certain tropical trees, interestingly enough. (Wish I could grow this tree in S FL)
Valued for its outstanding display of pink or white flowers in spring, redbud is an easy-to-grow small tree with delightful heart-shape leaves that turn golden-yellow in fall. It thrives in sun or partial shade and is native to areas of North America.
