Cercis canadensis 'Eternal Flame' is an exceptional cultivar of the Cercis canadensis species, commonly known as the Eastern Redbud. This compact, deciduous tree is prized for its outstanding features that bring beauty and vibrancy to any landscape.

One of the most striking attributes of 'Eternal Flame' is its remarkable display of flowers. In early spring, before the emergence of leaves, the branches become adorned with an abundance of stunning pink blossoms. These small, pea-like flowers cover the tree in a breathtaking spectacle, creating a focal point that captivates the eye and attracts pollinators such as bees and butterflies.

Beyond its remarkable floral display, 'Eternal Flame' offers an extended season of interest with its foliage. The heart-shaped leaves emerge in a rich shade of burgundy, transitioning to a vibrant red as they mature. The fiery-red foliage persists throughout the summer, maintaining its intensity and adding a warm and captivating touch to the surroundings. In autumn, the leaves transition to a lovely shade of yellow, providing a final burst of color before they drop.

This cultivar showcases a compact growth habit, making it suitable for smaller gardens or spaces. It typically reaches a height of 10-15 feet (3-4.5 meters) and spreads about 12-15 feet (3.6-4.5 meters) wide. Its size and form make it an excellent choice for urban landscapes, borders, or as a specimen tree in a prominent location.

Cercis canadensis 'Eternal Flame' is adaptable to a variety of soil types but thrives in well-drained, fertile soil. It prefers full sun to partial shade, although it can tolerate some shade. It is relatively low-maintenance, requiring regular watering during dry periods and occasional pruning to maintain its shape.

In conclusion, Cercis canadensis 'Eternal Flame' is a remarkable tree that stands out with its vibrant pink flowers, long-lasting fiery-red foliage, and compact growth habit. With its multi-season interest and ease of care, it is a valuable addition to any garden or landscape, providing year-round beauty and charm.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
