Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy' is a cultivar of eastern redbud tree known for its striking foliage and profuse, pea-like rosy-pink flowers that appear before the foliage in early spring. These cheerful blossoms persist for several weeks, attracting bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds before its broad, heart-shaped red-purple leaves arrive in late Spring. As fall approaches, the foliage turns into attractive shades of range, bronze, and red purple, adding multi-season interest.
Typically found as a small understory tree or large multi-stemmed shrub, Cercis canadensis is slow growing, but can reach heights of 20-30' tall. This cultivar's vase-shaped, upright habit makes it a great, compact specimen tree to attract birds, butterflies, and bees. As an understory tree, 'Forest Pansy' prefers full sun to part shade and moderately fertile soils with moist, well-drained soils. This cultivar is also deer, walnut, and clay soil tolerant.
