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.
