Cercis siliquastrum | Judas Tree | 4.5L Pot | 120-150cm
Judas Tree - 4.5L Pot 'Cercis siliquastrum'
The Judas tree is a bushy, deciduous tree that has a particularly excellent spring colour. Rosy-pink, pea shaped blooms appear in clusters all over the branches well before the leaves appear and can cover the whole tree including the trunk. This is quickly followed by healthy, green, heart-shaped leaves that turn a gorgeous yellow and bronze in the autumn. This hardy tree is happy in both the full sun and partial shade and will tolerate most soil types as long as it is moist but well-drained.

We have developed an eco friendly polypot that is currently in use across our 9 litre range. This polypot has less than 20% of the plastic used by a regular pot, and is importantly recyclable. Polypots also prevent root spiraling, encouraging a healthier root system.
All trees arrive in an extra thick cardboard box with a clamp to hold their pot in place. This prevents them from moving around on their journey.
Nursery staff will wrap the roots of our bare root trees and use compost to keep them moist during transportation. This extra protection prevents them from drying out, allowing for a flying start. We also use the same specialised box that our potted trees have to keep them nice and secure as they make their way to your home.
Please note: where your plant is supplied with a pot, your plant's 'Height on Arrival' includes the pot
Water young trees regularly until roots are well established. Trim annually to maintain shape if desired.
Apply some fertilizer in spring in order to promote healthy growth.
Advice on hot and droopy plants
If your plants are looking a little wilted right now, don’t worry! Plants like to be filled with water to keep their structure, and when it’s hot that water evaporates.
Just give them an off-schedule watering and they’ll be right as rain in no time! Be careful not to flood them - plants don’t like extremes.
- Planting Distance: 4m -6m
