They are. Before I knew the name my kids and I called them a valentine tree because of the heart shaped leaves.

Love this one Justin - do you find it reliably hardy? Lots in Crete and love the pink buds against the clear blue skies

comment

Yes it’s been totally fine. The late snow took the shine off the flowers this year and they didn’t seem to last so long but still looked great @tash74 👍🏼

I have this one @SylviaDavies which I think is a slightly different variety but still beautiful and I love it. This one can take 15-20 years to mature and other details can be found by tapping on the plant name 👍

SylviaDavies

Looks beautiful! Flowers on the branch then does it before the leaves? Will have a read, thanks,

3w
comment
justin

It sure does... the leaves form at end of branches and start off small but grow to be big and heart shaped. I do think it's one of the nicest things in my garden when it flowers, it looks spectacular 👍 @SylviaDavies

Thanks. Any suggestion of suppliers? @justin

I got mine from here https://www.ornamental-trees.co.uk/cercis-chinensis-avondale-tree-pp584 and I think Crocus also sell them. I planted mine early Spring and as you've read elsewhere moved one early winter last year and it's been fine but I'm in Surrey so not sure if location would make a difference or not... @SylviaDavies
