Cercis chinensis 'Avondale' is an upright, deciduous shrub or a small tree, often multi-stemmed, with very attractive, deep magenta, pink to lilac purple flowers. The heart-shaped, glossy, green leaves emerge in spring and turn yellow in autumn. Many dense clusters of tiny, rose-to-magenta flowers appear on bare branches before the leaves and spectacularly cover the whole bush. Flowers are followed by bean-like brown seedpods. Cercis chinensis 'Avondale' grows best in a moderately fertile, moist and well drained soil, in full sun or partial shade. The flowers thrive in full sun, but part shade is better in areas with hot summer climates. Generally, it is pest-free but may suffer from some diseases. Attractive to birds, butterflies, and bees. Cercis chinensis 'Avondale' is loved for its stunning spring appearance and attractive green foliage. It is great as a specimen plant or planted in groups. Perfect for beds and borders, woodland gardens, streets, and for growing in containers.

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).
