Tree Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy'




Description 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 borne before the re-emergence of leaves in spring.    
Mature Size 5 x 5m    
Uses A stunning feature tree for small gardens or courtyards. Also works well in larger gardens for interesting foliage and stunning spring flowers.    
Position & Soil This tree will tolerate most soils but doesn't like prolonged periods of drought or periods of wet. Best in deep well-drained fertile soils.
