Cercis canadensis 'Covey'

The last of my Redbuds is this relatively new one called Covey. It is a weeper. Ours has about a 3 foot trunk before it starts to weep, but you can have a taller one by staking in until it gets bigger before you let the branches start to cascade. Ours overhangs a lotus pond and is perfectly in scale with this smaller pond at the size it is. This is the first year that it has been really covered in bloom, but everything that is blooming is really covered in bloom this year. I'll probably take a hillside view to use tomorrow since photos of Latin noun endings aren't nearly as photogenic.
