This is a tree you'll want to grow even if only for the incredible beauty of its heart-shaped foliage. New leaf growth is this strong burgundy red that turns yellow, then green as it matures. As each leaf matures in its own time, there's a beautiful blend of about four or five colors on each branch at a time. While it shows off as an impressive feature, it's actually quite easy to grow, and fast-growing too. In early spring, the branches will be dotted with lovely little reddish-purple flowers. They're beautiful on the tree, but we also like snipping a few stems for interior décor. Cercis canadensis 'NC2016-2'
