Cercis canadensis 'Lavender Twist' is a cultivar of eastern redbud tree known for its striking weeping habit and dwarf size. As a redbud, 'Lavender Twist' also produces beautiful rose-pink blossoms in early spring which persist for several weeks, attracting bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, before its broad, heart-shaped leaves arrive later on in Spring. Heart shaped leaves remain attractive through fall, and the tree's weeping branch habit adds multi-season interest through the colder months too.

Typically found as a small understory tree or large multi-stemmed shrub, 'Lavender Twist' grows to only six or seven feet tall as compared to the larger 20-30' height of the straight species., making it an ideally showy choice for smaller spaces. This cultivar's weeping, draped growth habit makes it a great, compact specimen tree with great ecological appeal. As a natural understory tree, Cercis canadensis 'Lavender Twist' prefers full sun to part shade and moderately fertile soils with moist, well-drained soils. This cultivar is also deer, black walnut, and clay soil tolerant.
