Cercis 'Forest Pansy' / Red bud
An unusual and elegant small tree, a favourite tree for some of our cutomers. This small to medium sized tree is multi-stemmed and rounded in shape, most recognisable for its dark red, heart-shaped foliage. It has dark pink pea-like flowers in late spring. Suitable for most soil types, for sun to light shade, ideally out of exposed or windy locations. Allow it to grow to its natural shape, and mulch around the base with bark mulch, leaf mould or home-made compost, which will keep the soil fertile and healthy. Shown here growing in a Dublin garden planted by Howbert & Mays.
Irish-grown plants, 80-100cm tall, 10 litre pot.
Generally available in our Monkstown shop. Due to the size and fragility of this plant, it can only be delivered in County Dublin.
