We’re giving you some fun coloring activities! Our next coloring page theme is common Ohio trees. Can you name what trees we’re featuring just by looking at them?
Eastern redbud (Cercis canadensis) is usually one of the first trees to bloom in spring, blooming March through May. (So you may still see the pinkish magenta blossoms for a short time!)
Like other Ohio trees featured in our coloring pages, Native Americans used eastern redbud to treat ailments. Native Americans treated dysentery using an astringent from the bark. The roots and inner bark were also utilized for treating fevers, congestion and vomiting.
