A redder redbud than usual
DP132-2016 Posted Thursday, May 12
Note: This is not a crab apple tree (see yesterday's post for an example of that type of blooming tree).
The redder color (compare, for example, with my post for May 10) is due entirely to nature. I took pains to get the color balance right when I took the shot, and not to alter the color temperature during the processing. This is simply a cultivar that expresses a very different hue, and a more intense one, at that. It actually is closer to being red than the more common variety of redbud, which is actually pale purple when the blooms open. Even the buds of that type are deep purple, or magenta, not red.
