This ornamental redbud has some of the most intensely variegated leaves we have seen. It's a tree with great personality and something that works well as a medium specimin tree. It shares many of the characteristics of the common redbud with purple/pink spring blooms and general tolerance of many soil conditions and resistance to most disease.

When planted in full sun the redbud will have a more well-rounded, symmetrical tree form which makes it a beautiful specimen tree to highlight a garden or to place beside a patio. The redbud tree can also be planted in partial shade or partial sun which will create a more open, irregular shape as the limbs branch out looking for the sun. This open look, as well as the bright flowers, adds dimension and color to a shaded garden.

Alley cat redbud

It was much smaller than I thought it would be. It was really just a small, single branch about 4’ tall. The root system seems strong which is most important so I hope it grows quickly- it looks pretty sad right now!

Great expectations!

While this lovely tree has been received dormant, the bones look good and we are happily expecting an exotic speckled tree next summer.

The stunning Alley Cat

The Alley Cat Redbud is one of the most unique, beautiful redbuds I’ve ever seen. Made a 3.5 hours trip just to go get it and it’s happy and growing and I couldn’t be happier!!! Thanks Blooms for working with me to get my hands on this wonderful beauty!!!

Tall and healthy- planted a week ago and it’s already in full bloom. I should’ve bought two!


Our tree is beautiful and healthy and pick up was super easy!
