Redbud Tree Flowering Above Greenbrier Vine Tangle 7494

By February 13th of 2013 some redbud trees, Cercis canadensis, were already beginning to flower in Austin. This one made quite a contrast with the tangled greenbrier vine, Smilax bona-nox, beneath it.

  1. I am quite eager for the return of flowering trees and shrubs here, as well as the wildflowers, so really enjoy seeing this redbud tree. Thanks.

    • You’re most welcome. Temperatures in Austin are supposed to be in the 60s and 70s this week, so I suspect the redbuds will be coming out now.

  3. The six redbuds in my backyard are about to explode! That and the peaches are my favorite spring show.
