Description: Northern strain redbud is a spectacular spring bloomer, displaying bright pink flowers along the branches from early to mid spring. Developed by the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, the Northern strain redbud was produced by selecting seeds from the best-surviving individuals of eastern redbud throughout Minnesota's harsh winter. The result is a strain of eastern redbud that is hardy in zone 4 rather than the usual zone 5.
