Cercis siliquastrum | Judas Tree
Judas Tree - 3L 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.
