- Appeal: The Appalachian Red Redbud is a cultivar with red to fuschia flower blooms that emerge in early spring. Appalachian Red has heart shaped leaves. Its leaves start off red that change to green throughout the spring and will become yellow during the fall season before shedding its leaves for winter. Its irregular branching pattern adds to its architectural interest while still having an overall delicate appearance. The Redbud tree is also deer resistant and tolerates juglone (can plant under a walnut tree).
