Redbud 'Forest Pansy' - 7 Gal.


Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy'

It's difficult to imagine topping the native magnificence of Cercis canadensis, but in 'Forest Pansy', the species is indeed overshadowed by its purple-leaved cultivar. Like the species, 'Forest Pansy' is covered with clusters of rose-purple buds, opening in May to trumpet the true arrival of spring with an unrivalled display of deep rose-colored flowers that will appear weeks before the foliage. The flowers are slightly darker than the species and will blanket the branches for 2-3 weeks, finally giving way to big burgundy heart shaped leaves that will become a more muted purple in the heat of summer… what a show! Easily grown in any well-drained soil in full sun or part shade.

Seasonal Note: Many deciduous plants have started to go dormant for the season. You may experience yellow, spotted and dropping leaves. This is completely normal at this point in the season. Reach out if you have any questions!
