The Chinese redbud is native to the woodlands of central and southern China. The genus name Cercis comes from the Greek word kerkis which means weaver's shuttle, referring to the fact that the seed pod resembles the size and shape of a weaver's shuttle used to move the thread back and forth on a loom. In its native habitat, this plant acts as a woody tree that will grow up to 50 feet, however, due to differing conditions in the United States it generally grows as an open shrub that will reach 8 to 15 feet in height. It is similar in appearance to the Cercis canadensis which is native to North America however with several distinctions. It generally produces slightly larger purplish flowers, will end up growing to a shorter height than its North American counterpart, and have longer seed pods.
