Forest Pansy (Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy')
The very attractive Forest Pansy (Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy') grows to a small to medium rounded tree. In spring, the bare branches are covered with clusters of small rose-pink, pea-like flowers. These are followed by long seed pods that are very ornamental. The deep purple-red heart-shaped leaves emerge after the flowers and become deep purplish-black. In autumn, leaf colour can vary from red-purples to oranges. This deciduous tree from eastern north America has multiple trunks and is a stunning feature tree for gardens and parks.
