Cercis Canadensis 'Ruby Falls' 4 Litre   Cercis are deciduous, small trees with heart shaped leaves and clusters of deep lavender pink flowers opening before the leaves, followed by flattened deep purple pods. The Ruby Falls is a compact example of the Cercis with a weeping cultivar that can grow to 2 metres tall and wide. The leaves are a dark red maturing to a dark purple colour in the summer months.  The Ruby Falls is the first tree in the garden that will display its flowers, once the flowers fade the foliage begins. As well as being a striking tree that will enhance your garden it is also a great source of food for the wildlife.

Please remember these plants are deciduous so if purchased in winter the plant will arrive with no leaves.

Flowering Period: Approximately April and may however this depends on winter and spring climate.

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.
