Cercis canadensis 'NCCC1'

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Part shade is best in hot summer climates.

New Leaves emerge purple, but over time, gain various shades of white, green, and hot pink. Eventually leaves turn green in the summer. 

Performs best in moderately fertile soils with regular and consistent moisture.

Avoid wet or poorly drained soils. Since this tree does not transplant well, it should be planted when young and left undisturbed.
