We recommend planting your Cercis in its final place as they do not like to be relocated once settled. Try to remove any damaged branches during the dormant season, can tolerate hard pruning in early spring but try to refrain from this until the plant is established. Try incorporating some well rotted manure into the planting hole to stimulate new growth and stake if necessary.
