Forest Pansy Redbud

12 years ago

Helen asked about Forest Pansy in another post so I wanted to post a photo of mine. It's still blooming and the leaves are just starting to open up - really pretty right now. But late in the summer, the leaves won't be as purple and they get a bit burned and crispy in full sun. I don't think the species redbud does that. I don't know if FP would do better in partial shade or if it's just the Ozarks heat that bothers it.

I will say that it looks better as it matures. The first couple of summers, it looked like it wasn't going to make it at all. I'll try to remember to post another picture of the leaves in July or August.
