Growing in Freestone Co., TX, zone 8. Slow grower, drought tolerant and glorious white blooms really stand out. I have not been able to find any more and my little tree has not produced offsets.

Cercis canadensis alba WHITE-FLOWERED REDBUD Dec (z6) (Cut)
Profuse, pure-white blossoms on gracefully spreading branches in spring make this compact tree an excellent choice for the small yard. S-PSh/M

I planted a small white redbud tree 24 years ago here in central Indiana. Our soil is clay--lousy--but this tree has done very well. Every spring it is covered with white flowers that look as if it has been sprayed with whipped cream. Several years later, I planted a regular redbud about 15 ft. from it. These trees shade the eastern side of our back porch, and are beautiful together when in bloom. This tree grows wild all over this part of the state. I bought it from a mail order nursery that is based in South Carolina. I love this tree, and want more of them.
