Cercis canadensis var. texensis

Var. texensis, synonymous with and formerly known as Cercis reniformis, is a variety of eastern redbud that is native to Oklahoma and Texas. It typically has a shrubbier, more compact form than the straight species, with a mature height of 15-20’ tall. It differs from the straight species by having slightly more drought tolerance, darker and brighter wine red buds and flowers, glossier, thicker, broader, and darker green leaves, often with a more reniform (kidney-shaped) outline, leaf apices that are rounded or blunt (not pointed) and winter hardiness to USDA Zone 6 (species to Zone 4).

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Plants perform best in moderately fertile soils with regular and consistent moisture. Avoid wet or poorly drained soils. Since this tree does not transplant well, it should be planted when young and left undisturbed.
