The Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy', also known as Redbud tree, is a deciduous shrub. This Redbud shrub has beautiful glossy leaves, with the young leaves almost black in color.



The shrub blooms in May with gorgeous pink flowers before the foliage appears. The flowers are clustered on perennial twigs, branches, and trunk. The leaves are heart-shaped, reddish-brown, and grow on zigzagging branches.



The bark of the Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy' is dark brown. This creates a beautiful color contrast when the shrub is in bloom. Peeling of the bark occurs only in later years with larger stems.


Overall Height

The Redbud shrub has an average growth rate and can reach a maximum height of 7 to 8 meters.


Location and Hardiness

The shrub prefers a semi-sunny location on well-draining soil. If placed in a sheltered area, it is hardy against winter conditions.


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.
