Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy'

Eastern Redbud

Hardy Tree

  • A compact tree for small gardens, creating colour in every season
Here's a fabulous slow-growing tree that's perfect for small gardens. Few varieties can rival the vibrant and long-lasting foliage colours of this flowering shrub - the heart-shaped, red-purple leaves age to bright shades of orange and red in the autumn. An added bonus is the smattering of pretty pink-purple flowers in the spring if the tree is positioned in a warm and sheltered spot. A real eye-catcher wherever you grow it, 'Forest Pansy' can be grown as a small tree or as a large shrub - either way, you'll love it! Height and spread: 2-9m (6-30ft).

Grow Cercis canadensis in rich fertile, moist, well drained soil. Choose a position in full sun or dappled shade. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil to improve its structure and fertility. Plant Eastern Redbud trees at the same soil level as they were growing at the nursery.
In the first few years after planting, water Cercis trees regularly, particularly during dry periods, until fully established. Redbud trees will naturally form a handsome, often multi-stemmed tree. No pruning is required except to remove any damaged or poorly placed branches in late winter if necessary. Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy' can also be grown as a large shrub, which encourages attractive, large leaves but sacrifices flowering. Once established, cut back all stems to 60-90cm (24-35") from the ground in late winter or early spring. This can be carried out every other year.
