Product details

A most beautiful tree despite its association with Judas Iscariot.

Introduced in the 16th century it won the Award of Garden Merit in 2002.

It is very slow to root so is one of the few trees we recommend to stake for up to three years after planting.

A native of the Eastern Mediterranean it is a must for any garden large enough to give it justice!

A stunning sight in May when clusters of rosy-lilac pea-like flowers wreathe the wood sometimes springing direct from mature branches and even from the trunk.

These are followed by purple tinted seed pods from July onwards.

It slowly forms a well rounded tree and is perfect for sunny urban gardens and courtyards tolerating dry conditions well.

It thrives on most soils including very dry ones.

We stock these as both single and multi-stemmed.

Mature height: 3-7m

Mature spread: 4-6m
