Features

notes

RHS Chelsea Flower Show Plant of the Year 2021, Cercis Eternal Flame is impressive due to the constantly changing colour of its heart shaped foliage. Emerging as red, leaves turn to orange then yellow, sometimes with many colours along the same stem, creating the dramatic, fiery impression that denotes its name.

Insights

Best as a multi stemmed specimen grown as a shrub or small tree, once it matures, the stems will drip small pink flowers in spring, adding to its year round interest. Suitable for any garden, it can also be grown in a container, preferring full sun but tolerating some shade.
