Growth Form

The Cercis chinensis 'Avondale', also known as Chinese Redbud, is a small tree with a relatively upright growth form.



The plant blooms in April-May, before the foliage appears, with deep pink/purple flowers on the bare wood, which are clustered together.

Even at a young age, this cultivar blooms abundantly.


Bare Branches

The bare branches provide a beautiful winter silhouette. In spring, this Chinese Redbud tree has a unique growth pattern on the bare wood.


Leaf Color and Leaf Shape

The leaves of the Chinese Redbud tree have a heart-shaped form and are dark green. They are approximately 5-10 cm long and have a shiny surface. In autumn, the leaves often change to beautiful yellow and orange tones before falling from the tree.


How to plant the tree?

  1. Determine the final location of the tree and ensure it is free from cables, debris, old plants, and other obstacles that may hinder the tree's growth.
  2. Dig a planting hole that is twice the width of the root ball. Loosen the soil at the bottom of the planting hole and mix the excavated soil with (organic) garden soil or planting substrate.
  3. Adjust the planting hole to the height where the root ball fits and firmly press the soil.
  4. Fill the planting hole with water and wait for it to settle. Check if the root ball is sufficiently moist.
  5. Place the tree or plant in the planting hole. It is extremely important that the tree is not planted too deep, as this can cause root rot.
  6. Insert a tree stake or bamboo stake firmly into the ground on the side of the tree where the most wind comes from.
  7. Now, place the watering ring or create a mound of soil around the tree so that water can seep into the ground.
