Cercis canadensis ‘Merlot’
- Full Sun / Partial Shade
- Moderate Water
Valued for its flowers, and foliage. Its glossy heart shaped leaves are deep purple/red in color and provide excellent contrast in the garden. Bright Purple/Pink flowers make one of the showiest trees in Spring here in So Cal. Excellent alternative to Purple Leaf Plum and Flowering Cherry trees. Slightly more heat tolerant than the ‘Forest Pansy’. Do any pruning in dormant season or after bloom. Purple leaves fade to bronze/ green in late summer.
