Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
Commonly called 'The Judas Tree', Cercis siliquastrum is a superb tree for small gardens. Myth has it that Judas Escariot hanged himself on this type of tree during biblical times. Even if not true, the tree does orginate from that part of the world. In spring the tree is covered in cerise pink flowers, followed by heart shaped leaves, which turn a vivid yellow in autumn. It makes a great focal point in any residential garden, and is perfect for front gardens. Height and Spread: up to 10m (32').

Flowering Months
The Judas Tree requires very little pruning, only to remove any dead, damaged or diseased growth.
Plant Cercis siliquastrum into their final location straight away, as plants will dislike disturbance. Plant into a moist, but well-drained soil in full sun. A south-facing position is particularly recommended, so that the heat can ripen the summer shoots, priming them for the following spring’s display.
