    A lovely spreading tree that is often seen with multiple stems. Glaucous heart-shaped leaves appear after the flowers and turn pale yellow and brown in autumn. It is a lovely small tree for a warm, south-facing spot as it needs the heat to ripen the new shoots each summer to flower well the following spring. The pink blooms appear well before the leaves, and after a particularly warm summer, can cover the entire tree from the shoot tips to right down the trunk.

  • Garden care: Plant in their final location when young as they resent being transplanted. Requires minimal pruning. Remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches in late autumn or winter. When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly.
