Redbud in Wisconsin

Plant Talk with Mike YannyAbstract

So what was the problem? It all relates to hardiness. This species is native south of Wisconsin, in Illinois, southern Iowa, and far southern Michigan as well as points east and further south. The plant has hardiness issues in Wisconsin that are primarily evident when plants are in the juvenile stage of life. The Columbus strain of Redbud is subject to this same problem, though not as severely as other strains. Young, vigorously growing Redbud plants continue to grow late into the season when most other species of plants that are well adapted to our area have stopped. These well adapted plants are preparing for dormancy.
