CERCIS CANANDENSIS - FOREST PANSY
With brilliant dark purple, heart-shaped leaves, this is a stunning tree for a striking hit of colour and shape. It can be used as an understory tree for spring blooming in woodland gardens or as a border accent and its bare deciduous form can used for effect during winter months. Fantastic displays of small pink flower smother the trees in spring. It can be trimmed for form and shape.
