Cercis ‘Appalachian Red’
This tree has bright bubble gum pink blooms in the spring. The blooms almost seem to glow from a distance. The foliage is heart shaped and dark green during the summer, then turning yellow in the fall. The bark provides some winter interest as well when the leaves drop. This tree prefers some shade during hot summers and will grow in a wide variety of soils, but cannot tolerate wet soils.
