Product details

A native of South Eastern Canada and Eastern USA it is not as free flowering as Cercis siliquastrum but this clone makes up for it by its stunning deep red / purple leaf colour.

Grown and supplied as either a standard tree or multi-stemmed specimen we rate this as one of the best purple foliaged trees on the market.

It won the Award of Garden Merit in 2002. It makes a small tree of rounded habit and is ideal for sunny urban gardens and courtyards.

It does best in free draining soils and like Cercis siliquastrum is slow to root so we recommend stakes to be retained for the first three years after planting.

Flowers are a light pink and the autumn brings a luminescent red quality to the senescing leaves.

A wonderful small garden tree. Like many trees with distinctly coloured leaves full sun is needed to keep the leaf tone vivid.

Too much shade dulls the leaf to a dark green. This tree is also keen on hot summer temperatures to encourage growth so south facing locations are a must for this clone.

Mature height: 3-7m

Mature spread: 4-5m
