    How tall does this tree grow

    • pete

      Dear Mrs Ayling,

      You should see an ultimate growth of about 5-6 metres.

      Kind Regards
      Pete

    Will Cercis perform in clay (heavy) soil.

    • Richard Beamish

      Yes, they don’t mind clay but best lighten up the soil in the place you would be planting it.

  3. Mrs Lennox

    Is this suitable in a container?

    • pete

      Yes ,the Judas Tree can be kept in a container not less than 60cm in diameter.

      If it is planted in compost, then after a year it should be given plant food supplement, as the compost loses its nutrients

      Hope this helps

      Richard
