Cercis canadensis ‘Hearts of Gold’ ® Cercis

Cercis

Description: Cercis canadensis 'Hearts of Gold' Tree has a rounded and slightly spreading shape and boasts purple-red, pea-like flowers on bare branches in the spring. The heart shaped foliage emerges orange-red, then turns from translucent yellow to a yellow-green in summer. Leaves at the centre are somewhat darker, creating a striking gradient of colour from mid-green to bright yellow at the edge of the canopy. In autumn, it turns shades of golden yellow.

Cercis Growing Tips: Performs best in moderately fertile well drained soils. The best flower production occurs in full sun but part shade is best in hot summer climates.

Hieght and Spread (after 10 years): 3m x 3m
