Cercis canadensis is a medium-sized deciduous multi-stemmed ornamental tree grown for its wonderful foliage.

Cercis will thrive in moist but well drained soil, in sun are partial shade and is drought tolerant, making it very easy to grow for most gardeners. With its almost year round interest from flowers and foliage, it won’t disappoint.
