After observing a tree for several years at the J.C. Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh, NC I can say that this is a fabulous cultivar. The foliage has held up wonderfully in its full sun exposure and it is way more impressive than 'Silver Cloud'. If only I could remember to get a picture of the foliage...

Neutral ViburnumValley On Aug 22, 2009, ViburnumValley from Scott County, KY (Zone 5b) wrote:

'Floating Clouds' redbud is a relatively new variegated selection of this fine native plant. It has large white leaves with green variegations running through them.

This tree tolerates full sun better than many white-leaved type plants, with little burning. It is a vigorous grower and is distinctly different than the older more common selection 'Silver Cloud'.

Regional...

This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

Raleigh, North Carolina
