The glorious heart shaped leaves emerge flame red then mature to burnt orange and bright yellow. As the season progresses, the foliage of Cercis canadensis Eternal Flame is often at different stages of the transition, thus displaying the full range of fiery colours. Once the tree has established, it will also treat you to small, dark pink flowers in springtime.

This Cercis will form a bushy, rounded form with the branches smothered in tiny, deep pink flowers ahead of the foliage each spring. Cercis canadensis 'Eternal Flame' is also very easy to grow and maintain.
