Product Description

This is a beautiful small ornamental tree growing to a height of 4mts and 4mts wide. At the start of Spring clusters of small rose pink, pea-like flowers cover the entire tree followed by shiny reddish purple, heart shaped leaves. The leaves become quite large giving a very lush appearance.

In Summer the older, more sheltered foliage will harden off to a deep green creating a contrast with the vibrant new growth. Autumn turns the leaves a golden colour prior to them dropping to let the Winter sun back in.

Forest Pansy can be used as a specimen tree/shrub, fence line screening, or just to add a splash of colour amongst your other shrubbery.

It likes full sun or part shade, well drained fertile soil and needs mulch and Summer water to really excel.
