Have you been wondering what kind of tree blooms the beautiful pinkish-purple flowers this time of year all over Central Texas? They’re called Texas Redbuds. You know spring is just around the corner when you see them in bloom along with Bluebonnets. Some Redbud varieties have much deeper colors than others that brightly contrast the other trees in the area that are still barren from winter.
This photo was taken of the Redbud that’s at the gazebo circle drive at Landa Park in New Braunfels.
