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

This is a brand new plant hybridized by the North Carolina State University researcher Dr. Dennis Werner. With 'Covey' weeping redbud and 'Forest Pansy' redbud as parent plants, this progeny displays purple foliage on a weeping form of this native tree.

'Ruby Falls' will retain the purple color in its foliage through the growing season like 'Forest Pansy', has excellent branching structure, and flowers heavily.

This will probably explode off the charts of woody plant desirability.
