'Judas Tree' Cercis siliquastrum - An incredible tree, particularly when in full flower, the Judas Tree is a small deciduous tree with ancient origins from Southern Europe and Western Asia. It has lovely heart-shaped leaves and is noted for its prolific display of clusters of deep-pink flowers in the spring. The flowers are produced on year-old or older growth and even grow on the trunk. The foliage appears shortly after the first flowers emerge. Grows to 12m (40ft) tall in 20 years.

Cercis canadensis - A medium-sized deciduous multi-stemmed ornamental tree grown for its wonderful foliage. In spring, clusters of small, pea-like flowers open on the bare stems. These are followed by stunning, heart-shaped leaves, making this tree one of the most spectacular that you can plant for foliage colour, and it gets better and better every year. Grows to 8m (26ft) in 10 years.

Top Tips

Cercis can be left to grow naturally, or pruned to control its size and shape.

Care Information

  • Dig a square hole as deep as the roots and approximately 1.5x as wide.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the planting hole to help the plant establish quicker.
  • Spread the roots gently and place into the planting hole.
  • Mix well rotted compost or manure with the soil taken from the hole and then use to backfill around the tree.
  •  Keep well-watered until established.
  • No routine pruning is necessary apart from removing any twisted, damaged or dead branches in early spring.
