Can I plant a redbud tree in February?

Asked February 9, 2019, 10:10 PM EST

One nursery says yes, another no. I’d like to get it in the ground now in case we have a drought this summer. Thanks for your help!

Best time to plant redbud is in the spring or early fall. This tree does not like permanently wet soils. Take a look at the planting process and post planting care
