'Judas Tree' Cercis siliquastrum – An incredible tree, particularly when in full flower, the Judas Tree is a small deciduous tree with ancient origins from Southern Europe and Western Asia. It has lovely heart-shaped leaves and is noted for its prolific display of clusters of deep-pink flowers in the spring. The flowers are produced on year-old or older growth and even grow on the trunk. The foliage appears shortly after the first flowers emerge. Grows to 12m (40ft) tall in 20 years.
'Forest Pansy' Cercis canadensis – The Forest Pansy, is a medium-sized deciduous multi-stemmed ornamental tree grown for its wonderful foliage. In spring, clusters of small, pea-like flowers open on the bare stems. These are usually pink, but sometimes dark crimson or white, and are followed by stunning, heart-shaped leaves that are a fabulous, deep red-purple colour. In autumn the foliage changes colour to flaming shades of orange, red and purple, making this tree one of the most spectacular that you can plant for foliage colour, and it gets better and better every year. Grows to 8m (26ft) in 10 years.
