Oklahoma Redbud is a small popular native deciduous tree with multiple trunks and broad rounded crown.  Glossy rich green leaves turn greenish-yellow in fall.  A heavy profusion of wine-red flowers that bloom on bare branches in early spring before the foliage comes in attracting butterflies.  Following the flowers are bean-like seed pods that mature in summer and can persist until winter.  Prefers partial sun and rich well-drained soils with consistent moisture.  Tolerates drought, deer, and Black Walnuts.

Cercis canadensis is an important host for the Henry's Elfin Butterfly and supports a specialized bee- the Southeast Blueberry Bee.  Its nectar is an early food source for several butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds.  The seedpods are enjoyed by birds and wildlife.
