Cercis canadensis - Forest Pansy Tree

Cercis canadensis - Forest Pansy Tree is a superb small tree that is an excellent choice for a landscape where a colourful, elegant, purple-leafed tree is required. This tree is easily adapted as a multi-stemmed or central leader tree depending on requirements. A consistent performer, ideal for small areas.

Height: 5 metres.

Width: 5 metres.

Form: Cercis canadensis - Forest Pansy Tree is open and low branching, forming a flat-topped canopy. The young branches have a distinct 'zig-zag' form.

Foliage: The large heart-shaped leaves of the Cercis canadensis - Forest Pansy Tree open up in spring to a brilliant eye-catching shade of reddish-purple with a velvety-satin appearance, deepening to purplish-black then fading to purplish-green in summer.

Autumn colour: Generally exhibits brilliant yellow to orange autumn colours.

Flowers: Masses of small, pink, 'pea'-like flowers borne in groups along the branches before the leaves appear in spring.

Tolerances: Wide range including acid or alkaline soils but is easily stressed and resents prolonged dry or very wet sites.

Comments: Cercis canadensis - Forest Pansy Tree prefers a moist, deep, well drained fertile soil. Best foliage colour in full sun, but prefers not to be exposed to a large amount of sun and wind. The Forest Pansy has become highly sought-after more recently.
