Zones 6-9

Flame Thrower® will soon be one of the most photographed trees in your garden. Before the leaves emerge, purple-red flowers fill the branches giving a great blooming display. In the spring the heart-shaped leaves start out as deep maroon red, maturing to yellow, then to green by late May. These colors heat up again with the summer flush of bright red, maturing to shades of orange, peach, apricot, and yellow over the green older growth. This is perhaps the most colorful redbud to date! The colors seem unreal causing Flame Thrower® to immediately become a hit with your neighbors. We expect Flame Thrower® to reach 12-15 ft in height and width in 10 years. Give plenty of sun for Flame Thrower® to display the most dynamic leaf colors.

Flame Thrower® was bred and developed by Dennis Werner at the JC Raulston Arboretum. 

Our 3 gallons are about 2.5-3 ft. Get one of the top hit plants of the year before it is gone!

Flame Thrower® makes an excellent companion plant with Golden Falls®.

 Limited Quantities Available !! As we have over a thousand cultivars of woody ornamentals, we often do not have many of each cultivar. We recommend that you buy the woody ornamentals you want immediately as we often sell out of certain selections.
