A superior selection of the Chinese redbud, distinguished from the species by its more dwarf growth habit and ability to flower abundantly at a very early age. Growing only 8-10' in height, 'Avondale' makes a small, well branched, sturdy tree, well suited to the modern garden. The deep cerise-pink flowers crowd the naked branches in springtime making a spectacular sight. Later, heart-shaped leaves clothe this redbud in a rich summer green. 'Avondale' makes an excellent large tub plant for garden terrace or courtyard as well as a lovely specimen in the landscape.

Stunning in spring, the rose-purple-pink pea-like blossoms totally cover the branches and trunk of this New Zealand Redbud, even at a young age. It is a sturdy small tree, good in petite gardens and even in large patio pots. Summer brings glossy heart-shaped green leaves.

The "fantastic", deep-pink flowers of this 8-12', New Zea.discovered shrub are produced in SUCH profusion, they can completely cover even the stems: "cauliflory"!; (remove some seed pods for better growth ; fls). S/M/GDr
