Cercis siliquastrum (Judas Tree)

The cercis siliquastrum or otherwise known as the “Judas tree”, belongs to the category of deciduous trees with wide use in Greece. In 30 years, it reaches up to 10 meters in height and 6 meters in width. It is used in landscape architecture for its vigorous branching, in which it bears bright pink flowers in spring. The fruit has a shape similar to a bean and stays on the tree all year round.  It grows very successfully in all soils, preferring well-drained ones. It tolerates cold, heat and salt. It will be found in urban or country gardens, parks, and also on sloping soils (its root system prevents erosion).
