Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy'

Browse form

This small, attractive tree has spectacular heart shaped, burgundy coloured leaves that continually change colour throughout the year. A rich purple in spring, the foliage transforms to green over summer, followed by a multi-coloured autumn display in tones of red, apricot and gold. The branches have a distinctive, smooth, dark brown wood which contrasts well with the blossom like pink flowers that are born before the re-emergence of leaves in spring.
