To say that Ruby Falls is a unique tree is perhaps an understatement. With large weeping heart shaped leaves, it is a tree that resembles a tiny monster as much as it does a tree. That's why, if you have a little bit of imagination and are willing to take a risk, this is a wonderful tree to use as the focus planting in a part of your garden. The human eye can't resist looking at it. Perhaps it triggers part of the brain that forces your attention, like a striking piece of art or some other captivating subject. If you want your yard or garden to beckon the eye and demand attention this is a great tree for the job all season long whether in branch, bloom, or leaf.

Ruby Falls is a purple redbud that will maintain purple/red leaves through the growing season. Like the forest pansy, the depth of color depends on the amount of sun that the leaves receive. In full sun the leaves will transition to a deep green with brighter green veins - The one pictured here is in full summer sun in August, hence the green shades. In full shade, they will remain more purple with green veins. Like all redbud trees, the for pansy has captivating heart shaped leaves and small bright purple flower clusters in the early spring. Redbuds are hearty and disease resistant trees, and can tolerate a wide range of soil and light conditions.
