Goethe in the Garden
May 21, 2016 Ned Friedman, Director of the Arnold Arboretum
As Goethe observed, redbuds produce flowers directly out of old woody trunks and branches. The key to their spring floral display is that the flowers thus cover the entire tree, not just the newly emerged distal shoots. That, coupled with the fact that peak flowering in redbuds precedes the expansion of leaves, makes for a spectacular display!
