Cercis canadensis 'Appalachian Red' (Appalachian Red Redbud)
Some plants are described as having red flowers, but the term "red" used here in the cultivar name misinforms those who have not seen it in flower. Many firms list flowers as "fuchsia pink". It's certainly not blood-red like Rosa moyesii, but this selection is a distinctively much brighter pink than seedlings. So it catches your eye - one of our favorites. Its flowers closely match the intense pink color of Prunus campanulata.
