The Oklahoma Redbud
Cercis canadensis var. texensis  'Oklahoma'


'Oklahoma' is an outstanding North American native flowering tree from you guessed it: Oklahoma, and Texas too! That means it's a real tough tree that can handle the heat, humidity and extreme weather conditions these states are known to have. But not only is it tough, it's beautiful as well. What really separates it from other redbuds is the abundance of deeper purple spring flowers and its thick, glossy leaves, which are heart-shaped but more rounded on the tips. It's also has shown slightly more drought tolerance. Oklahoma is more compact than others in the species so it fits well into smaller landscape spaces.

‘Oklahoma’ was discovered growing wild in the Arbuckle Mountains of Oklahoma in 1964.

The Oklahoma Redbud grows well in almost any type of soil that is well-drained and full sun to part sun. It is hardy in USDA Zones 6a-9b. Find Your Zone >
