Product Information

An incredible tree, particularly when in full flower, Cercis siliquastrum, commonly known as 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.

 Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come. Also, Cercis is recommended by the RHS as a 'Plant for Pollinators' with the flowers being favourite with butterflies and bees.

Cercis is easy to care for, and is drought tolerant, thriving in most soils in sun are partial shade, and also does well in exposed locations, slowly forming a well-rounded tree.

Supplied as 3 x established trees in 9cm pots, ready to plant, growing to a height of 12m (40ft) and width of 7m (23ft) in 20 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.
