Cercis Canadensis Merlot
Cercis canadensis ‘Merlot’ is a cultivar of the Eastern Redbud tree, known for its striking ornamental features. This deciduous tree is valued for its compact size, typically reaching a height of 4-8M with a similar spread, making it suitable for smaller gardens and landscapes. ‘Merlot’ is named for its deep, wine-red foliage, which emerges in spring and maintains its rich colour throughout the growing season. In early spring, before the leaves appear, the tree produces clusters of small, rosy-pink flowers directly on its branches, adding to its visual appeal. This Redbud variety is appreciated for its aesthetic qualities and ability to bring vibrant colour to gardens, making it a popular choice among landscaping enthusiasts.
