Cercis Hearts of Gold
Cercis canadensis
The first known, gold-foliaged Cercis – selected in the USA. New leaves emerge tinted bronze then turn to gold, and where leaves are shaded by others, will turn to green. ‘Hearts of Gold’ offers a perfect way to brighten even the greyest day, and provides a riot of colour in early spring flower, even before the bright golden foliage emerges. Tiny lavender-purple blooms are early harbingers of spring in the landscape. And in summer, the gold foliage is burn-resistant even in full sun. As vigorous as green varieties, and a great complement for ‘Forest Pansy’ in the garden. ‘Hearts of Gold’ will grow to 3m in the first 5 years. At maturity it will reach 4.5m tall by 5.4m wide, making it perfect as a specimen plant for the modern landscape. Hardy. 4.5 x 4.5m
Masses of tiny lavender-purple blooms cover the bare leafless stems from early spring.
New leaves emerge tinted bronze before turning gold.
Vase shaped.
