Growing Eastern Redbud as a Shrub?
Not sure if I should post hers or in the shrub forums...
I have a small Forest Pansy Eastern Redbud sapling I planted last year that died back to the ground after the winter we had.
So I dug it up and put it in a pot to see if it came back.... It has, but the main trunk is dead and it has sprouted well from several suckers.
Problem is, of the suckers, none is really a good candidate to make into a main trunk. I'm wondering if it would make sense to just let it grow as a shrub and prune as needed in that manner? Anybody done this?
