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.
Below is an image by David Creech from ornamentaloutlook.com, where you can read a detailed analysis of the species.
This Cercis canadiensis has been pruned well, showing the trees natural, elegant form. The blossoms are also gorgeous.
