The objective of TSU research has been to evaluate the adaptation and limitations of different redbud varieties to growth in nursery and greenhouse settings. The presentation will start with a discussion of genetics and genes important to why redbuds flower different colors and produce differently shaped, sized, and colored leaves. Dr. Blair will also present research that evaluates the photosynthetic and leaf mineral concentration differences existing in different genotypes of the redbud tree.
