Redbud - Oklahoma
The Oklahoma Redbud is a profuse and showy deciduous tree that makes for a great front yard specimen tree. This variety can also be used to line streets or frame an entrance to your home. It displays shiny, dark green foliage that turns yellow before falling off in the autumn season. The tree has a round or vase-shaped form that becomes completely covered in beautiful magenta flowers in the spring. The Oklahoma is fast-growing and reaches 20-30 feet high and 15-20 feet wide. It prefers to be planted in full sun or partial shade and is hardy in Zones 6-9. The Oklahoma is drought-tolerant.

How to Plant
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.
We had one OK Red Bud tree given to us from our daufhter. We lost 3 Flowering Cherry trees to a storm last year. Since the OK Red Bud has done so well we decided that the 3 lost trees would be replaced by the Ok Red Bud. The trees arrrived in great shape and were planted 2 days after they arrived. We are looking forward to their growing and showing their beautiful spring color next year!!
Arrived in good condition. Planted the same day as arrival, -mulch, supportive stakes, the works. However, within 24 hours leaves started to blacken. Now I'm hoping it will bounce back otherwise I will have to find out just how good the Plant-MeGreen guarantee on potted plants is...
(I suspect this plant is a bare root that was re-potted the previous fall and didn't have enough time to grow an effective root network before being sold in the spring)
