Eastern Redbud

Cersis canadensis


Backyard tree, probably about 5m in height. Produces red clusters of flowers on the stem in the spring which become 5-cm green to brown pods. Leaves are heart-shaped, palmately-veined, alternately arranged. Grows as a cluster of trunks rather than one single trunk.


Common throughout Missouri, both as an ornamental and native tree. Tends to be found in open places.


Found in my neighbor's yard. Taken for the iNaturalist Princeton Heights Tree survey.
