They are in full flower in mid-May and I've captured last week its beautiful pea-like flowers covering the bare stems.
The showy flowers are light pink or magenta, I was so lucky to find both colors here.
These beautiful redbud blossoms are in clusters on branches and even on the trunk.
The heart shaped, bronze color leaves are just emerging, they will turn green in summer and than yellow in autumn.
Here is a pale pink redbud flower macro.
Redbuds, also known as the Judas trees, are small trees or shrubs. This twisted redbud shrub has spreading branches with just flowers on it.
Here are the two redbud trees I've found; a pink and a magenta one. They probably look much better in their homeland.
They bloom late here, in the same time with other trees that have similar pea-like flowers like the Laburnum trees-Golden Rain trees, with bright yellow blooms.
The white flowering shrubs at the right side of the path in this last picture are Diablo Ninebark Shrubs (Physocarpus opulifolius). They have very interesting flowers.
