Grown in 3ltr pot approx 30cm in height.
An attractive, small deciduous tree with rounded, green heart shaped leaves.
It’s main attraction however is in spring, clusters of pea-like flowers appear along the branches and trunk. These flowers are pink in colour and appear early in spring, before the foliage and are followed by long, flat, deep purple pods which hang decoratively throughout the tree.
Avoid overly hot or windy sites, prefers to be on moist but not waterlogged soil. Having said that mine survives perfectly well on a rather dry bank.
Likes any moist but well drained soil in full sun or partial shade.
Height 6m x Spread 4m.
