Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy'

Eastern Redbud

Hardy Tree

  • A compact tree for small gardens, creating colour in every season
A perfect choice for small gardens, this slow-growing deciduous tree or large shrub bears heart-shaped, red-purple leaves, which age to vibrant shades of orange and red in autumn. If grown in a warm and sheltered spot, this variety will produce a smattering of delightful pink-purple, pea-like flowers in the spring, which are borne along the bare branches before the leaves. A magnificent specimen tree for small gardens, Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy' can also be grown as a large shrub. This handsome RHS AGM variety is a real talking point and makes a lovely contrast to lime green foliage plants. Height and spread: 3m (10’).

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.

  1. Would at least like the chance to be unimpressed!

    By Val Watson 08-11-2014

    I ordered bought one of the through the offer from the Money Saving Expert website. All I've had is a series of emails and letters saying it will be delayed. I thought I was getting close as the last email said it would be here by the end of November but I just got a letter saying it was now going to be the end of December. Not really the best time for planting. I could have got pregnant and given birth in less time than this!

  2. Not impressed 2

    By Marianne Carter 13-09-2014

    I also purchased two of these trees, when they were on offer on the Martin Lewis site, there was a delay in sending these out, because there was such a high demand, which I understand. I ordered one for myself , the other for my mother-in-law. Mine arrived first, it was approx 10" high with 4 leaves on it, bare rooted. I have just visited my mother-in-law and seen what she has received. Her tree was potted and is approx 4ft high and looks more like a bush! On commenting on this on a review site, Thompson and Morgan assured me that my "twig" would soon be a healthy tree. I paid the same price for both. Very very disappointed.
