Larger in leaf and flower than eastern redbud (Cercis canadensis), this Chinese native makes a beautiful shrub or small tree for sun or light shade. The bright purple-pink pea-flowers cluster along the upright gray branches in mid-spring, before the large, glossy, heart-shaped leaves emerge. Abundant green seedpods follow the flowers, maturing to brown. The leaves turn dull yellow in fall.
Less cold hardy than eastern redbud, Cercis chinensis shares its preference for well-drained, acidic to slightly alkaline soil. Heat tolerant, it has proven its mettle in Southwest and Southeast United States. Its bold handsome foliage, showy flowers, and relatively compact habit make it an excellent candidate for foundation plantings and mixed borders.
The edible flowers of this plant are excellent for spicing up salads. (source: learn2grow.com)
