Black Pearl is a dark maroon and purple redbud with deep dark color. What sets it apart from other purple redbuds is the depth of color in the leaves foregoing lighter shades of red for deep dark purple. This redbud holds it color through the growing season and follows the leaf pattern of aces of hearts with symmetrical orderly leaves. For those looking to grow a beautiful nativar that doesn't require water maintenance after the first few years Black Pearl is an excellent choice. 

During the growing season (especially in fertile conditions) Black Pearl will maintain dark purple leaves. Unlike the forest pansy, Black Pearl maintains purples color through the growing season. Like all redbud trees, the Black Pearl has captivating heart shaped leaves and small bright purple flower clusters. Redbuds are hearty and disease resistant trees, and can tolerate a wide range of soil and light conditions.

Very Healthy

Got my redbud in the mail and bare root soaked and planted it the same day. It was all stick and roots upon arrival, but within days the leaves are sprouting. Very pretty dark purple leaves with some green. Love this little tree.
