The Redbud is the King of Hearts

Redbuds mostly (and deservedly) get love and appreciation for their eponymous buds and the springtime flowers that festoon their branches.

But check out the leaves on this Cercis canadensis! Here's a tree with a lotta heart...

PS - You know the other great thing about redbuds? Free seedlings! We started with four redbud trees. Now we have eight, plus a number of new babies that sprouted this year. Any unwanted seedlings are pretty easy to pull if you catch them young. And the seedlings you do keep? Man, they grow like gangbusters.
