Alley Cat is a new Redbud variety. It features dark pink pea-shaped flowers, which are borne on bare branches in April, before the leaves.
The main attraction is the very large rounded leaves, which are the size of a hand. When they emerge the leaves are a rosy / dark green but as spring progresses they are transformed with large abstract patches of white.
You can pre-order now for delivery from late September 2021 for pot grown trees (or early December for bare-root). You do not need to pay at this stage - just add items to the basket and checkout as usual.

Like all Cercis, Alley Cat does best in full sun, and needs a well-drained soil.
Alley Cat was found growing wild in a backstreet in Kentucky, and introduced for sale in 2016.
