Cercis Canadensis: Forest Pansy

Cercis Canadensis Forest Pansy

Those species of Cercis originating from the new world in areas such as North America are often referred to as ‘Red buds’, for example Cerics canadensis.

The sun shining through the glorious rich-purple, heart-shaped foliage of this plant is one of the wonders of the garden. Some leaves reflect the light whilst others appear translucent, the overall effect being a tapestry of different shades of purple.

It has rose-pink flowers that appear on the bare stems in late April and the gorgeous foliage colour lasts from mid May until November.

It is a spectacular shrub that deserves a good position in nearly any garden.

Cercis Canadensis Forest Pansy

Suitable for a position in full sun and will grow well in most well drained soils.

It is hardy, but is seen at its best when sheltered from strong winds.

It is a medium to large shrub and a plant in our arboretum has reached a height of 2 m and a spread of 2 m after 8 - 10 years
