The Oklahoma Redbud tree, Cercis reniformis, 'Oklahoma', has glossy green foliage. This redbud tree was discovered growing wild in the Arbuckle Mountains of Oklahoma in 1964. The Okahoma redbud is a small, deciduous understory tree which typically grows to 12-18' tall.

This tree has clusters of tiny, wine-red, pea-like flowers that bloom profusely on the branches and mature trunks for 2-3 weeks in early spring (March-April) before the foliage emerges. The Oklahoma redbud's heart-shaped leaves open soft pink but gradually mature to a glossy rich green. Pendulous, flat, bean-like, 2-4" long seed pods resembling snow peas appear after flowering.

Oklahoma redbud trees have fall color that is variable, but often includes attractive shades of reddish-purple and orange. Redbuds are true harbingers of spring. It is easily grown in average, medium wet, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Part shade is best in hot climates.

Not reliably winter hardy throughout USDA Zone 5 where it should be planted in a protected location. Excellent small tree for lawns, woodland gardens or naturalized areas. Effective planted as a specimen or in groups. Street tree in residential areas.
