Perfect for smaller landscapes, this phenomenal hybrid with lustrous, dark purple leaves. Foliage is similar to Forest Pansy, but with Texas Redbud in its genes, 'Merlot' offers excellent drought tolerance and thicker, glossier leaves that stand up to summer heat. Tight, dense, semi-upright habit. Bright lavender-pink flowers in spring. Deciduous.
Partial to full sun. Lustrous leaves with a pinkish cast develop on crimson stems, mature to dark green and transform to a wonderful combination of purple and green in winter. Showy clusters of small, fragrant, white flowers emerge from rosy pink sepals in summer. Its compact size makes an excellent foundation, container or low hedge plant. Evergreen.
Profuse, large, overlapping, blush pink, flower-like bracts cover this small but vigorous tree in early spring. The fully branched habit provides layers of lush green foliage from bottom to top. A magnificent landscape specimen for small gardens or woodland settings. A sterile cultivar that produces no fruit. Deciduous.
