How to Plant
STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
Care Guide

To care for the Hearts of Gold Redbud, plant it in well-drained soil and provide full sun to partial shade for the best foliage color and overall growth. Regular watering, particularly during its establishment phase and in periods of drought, helps maintain its health and vigor. Pruning should be done in late winter or early spring to remove any dead or damaged branches and to shape the tree as needed. Fertilizing in early spring with a balanced fertilizer can support robust growth and flowering.
