Cercis ‘Eternal Flame’ Wins HTA New Plant Award


WE WON Best In Trees Category for Cercis ‘Eternal Flame’ at the HTA New Plant Awards 2021.

This wonderful new variety, Cercis ‘Eternal Flame’ was bred in the USA at the JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh. This lovely Cercis has the most stunning, glossy dramatic foliage of any Cercis variety. The initial leaf is a dark red colour which turns orange, then yellow and finally to green. Throughout the season all of these colours can be displayed at the same time in different proportions depending on the season.

It has a semi-pendulous habit and in UK conditions can be grown as a multi-stemmed bush or small tree. A small tree reaching up to 8-10ft in height in 5 years. Preceding the foliage, in May there are the typical pea like pink flowers of Cercis that adorn the branches. The flowers cover the tree more as the tree matures.

Prefers to be planted in a full sun position and grows it’s best in moderately fertile, well-draining site. The best flower production is when the tree is planted in a hot summer climate. Can be pruned after flowering. A great addition to any garden.
