Mexican RedbudCercis mexicana
Driving in early Spring through southern warm-temperate counties, Redbud cannot be overlooked. Their pink-red flowers on branches without leaves are showy and can be seen from far away. Redbuds grow as deciduous trees sometimes multi-branched shrubs. Later in the year their round heart-shaped leaves make them special.|
Varieties of Redbuds found in the US are:
Cercis canadensis - Eastern Redbud
Cercis mexicana - Mexican Redbud - some botanist think it is a variety of C. canadensis
Cercis occidentalis - California Western Redbud
Cercis reniformis - Oklahoma Redbud - some botanists think it is a variety of C. canadensis
Cercis texensis - Texas Redbud - some botanist think it is a variety of C. canadensis
Mexican Redbuds have a high drought tolerance and grow well in full sun. When the soil is light and rich, most plants including the Redbud grow very well, but Redbuds grow on a variety of soil including sandy or alkaline, often on limestones soils. When their is a drought and hot temperatures, you can help all Cercis species with some additional water.
Cercis is often used by Lepidoptera larvaes. Redbud beans provide food for several bird species.
