Cercis

Description: Cercis 'Ruby Falls' is a graceful new introduction of weeping habit. The heart-shaped leaves appear rich purple, very similar to 'Forest Pansy'. Clusters of bright pink pea-like flowers open just before the foliage in spring followed by flattened, deep purple pods. Perfect for small gardens!
