Cercis canadensis 'Lavender Twist' is a popular small weeping variety of Judas Tree (also called Eastern Redbud). It's favoured for its spring interest and suitability for small gardens, since it grows to just 2 x 1.5 metres in 20 years.
The long weeping branches of 'Lavender Twist' have a gentle attractive twist and in spring they are smothered in a copious crop of lilac-pink, pea-like flowers. The flowers stand out beautifully against the sculptural framework of dark bare branches. This is followed by mid-green, heart shaped foliage which looks particularly attractive covering the pendulous branches. In autumn, the foliage transforms to golden yellow.
This small weeping tree will grow in most soils and positions and can even be pot grown given the right care. A lovely feature tree or a superb addition to a garden border, bringing fantastic spring interest. One of our most popular Cercis trees due to its suitability for all sizes of gardens. Also known as Cercis canadensis Covey, named after an American lady called Connie Covey in whose garden this chance seedling first grew.
