Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy' is a large, deciduous shrub or a small, often multi-stemmed, tree with flat-topped, vase-shaped habit and very attractive foliage. The heart-shaped, glossy, vibrant, deep-purple leaves emerge in spring and turn orange, bronze and red-purple in autumn. The blossoms of tiny, bright pink flowers appear on bare branches before the leaves and are followed by bean-like brown seedpods. Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy' thrives in moderately fertile, moist and well drained soils, in full sun or partial shade. Generally, it is pest-free but may suffer from some diseases. Attractive to birds, butterflies, and bees. It doesn’t transplant well so it shouldn’t be disturbed. Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy' is loved for its beautiful colourful foliage. It is great as a specimen plant or planted in groups. Perfect for beds and borders, woodland margins, or along patios. Very good as a street tree or a lawn tree.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

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).
