Planting Redbud Trees

Every year, I always plant a collection of interesting and beautiful trees. It is such a joy to watch the gardens, groves, and allées evolve and expand around my Bedford, New York farm.

If you follow my Instagram page @MarthaStewart48, you may know I recently purchased several Cercis canadensis 'Merlot' trees, or eastern redbuds - the state tree of Oklahoma. I bought them while on a business trip in Tulsa from Stringer Nursery, the city's oldest garden center. These trees are native to eastern North America and will do just fine planted at the edge of my Japanese Maple Woodland where a few others have thrived for years.
