Cercis canadiensis – The Forest Pansy – My all time favourite tree

September 14, 2010 § Leave a comment

Would you look at this tree! It is 14 years old and growing happily in the suburbs of Cardiff.

Cercis canadiensis is native to the US. The leaves have a lovely heart shape and the bark is grey and almost reptilian.

This Cercis canadiensis has been pruned well, showing the trees natural, elegant form. The blossoms are also gorgeous.
