CERCIS canadensis var. texensis 'Texas White'
Texas Redbud, Texas White Redbud
This cultivar, 'Texas White,' is a white-flowering selection of Texas redbud with thick, shiny, waxy leaves, and profuse flowering. It is a native of Texas and Oklahoma and is a heat-tolerant variation of the common redbud. Growing as a multi-stemmed shrub or small tree, 'Texas White' bears clusters of white, sweet pea-like flowers in early spring, before leaves emerge. Dark brown seed pods follow flowering and persist well into winter
For best growth and flowering, grow 'Texas White' in full to partial sun, on rich, well-drained soil with good moisture. Prune anytime after flowering. It is an eye-catching specimen tree and also a compatible tree in a mixed border.
