    I would like to add a Lavender Twist Weeping Redbud (Cercis canadensis 'Covey') to my landscape, but I have very little experience with this plant. I am looking for comments from those who have tried to grow this tree in Seattle and suggestions on nurseries that offer it for sale.

    I've seen it before in local sales yards, maybe it will be available this year as well. Depends on what local nursery buyers order and what their suppliers respond with.

    Redbuds can be fussy, and not just in this region - same will apply to this kind. What you want is a hot site with good drainage.
