Official State Tree of Oklahoma

Oklahoma designated redbud (Cercis canadensis) as the official state tree in 1937. All State Trees

The redbud is a small deciduous tree with heart-shaped leaves and gorgeous reddish-pink blossoms that brighten the Oklahoma landscape in early spring. Redbud tree flowers are edible (some people use them in salads and baked goods).
