What should I know about redbud propagation?


Answer by  icyblue (236)

use the seeds - easily the best way to propagate redbuds. Plant them. They need very little care - I've seen them grow even on clay!

The seeds take a long time to germinate. To speed up the process use scarification - concentrated sulfuric acid for 30 minutes to get rid of their tough coat. A couple og months in cool soil and they will germinate. Otherwise they may take an hour.  add a comment

Redbud propagation can be difficult. To propogate redbuds, you should take cuttings from the plant starting in June. It is highly recommended to use some sort of growth hormone to aid in development. It takes about 4 weeks for rooting to occur, 6-8 weeks for deep rooting to take place.

If you are propagating from cuttings you are in for a challenge. This is not like propagiang ivy and you should expect a large percentage to fail. Seed is not alot easier to propagate. The seeds have a thick coat and my research indicates it is recomended to scarify in in concentrated sulfuric acid for 30 minutes initially.

Well to propagate these red buds, you have to make sure you plant them properly. You also have to ensure that they are watered carefully.

One thing I found that you simply cannot use cuttings to propagate redbuds. It's easy to transplant whole plants though. They have long roots and sometimes this makes it difficult to transplant.

Redbud trees are easy to propogate. They grow like weeds on any property they occupy. You can just dig up a small redbud and replant it.
