A medium, deciduous tree with vivid, green fern-like foliage. Features clusters of purple-mauve trumpet shaped blossoms, appearing in late spring followed by flat leathery seed pods.
The lovely trumpet shaped flowers appear before the leaves return, then drop to form a blue carpet underneath the tree. The flower colour varies from soft blue through to mauve/blue and almost purple.
