Texas White

Cercis canadensis var. texensis

As the name suggests Texas White is an example of the North American species Cercis canadensis, hailing from the southern end of its native range.

Texas White is unusual in that the blossom is white rather than the more common red / mauve / purple of most Cercis. The flowers are also noticeably larger than normal.  The result is a stunning spring display, rivalling the best white-blossomed flowering cherry trees.

The large heart-shaped leaves follow the blossom, bright lime green to begin with, and turning yellow in the autumn.

Texas White grows with a pleasing upright spreading shape, and should reach 3m or so in UK conditions.
