Similar in every way to the traditional Judas Tree, but producing lovely ivory white flowers in May
Similar in every way to the traditional Judas Tree, but producing lovely ivory white flowers in May instead of the well know rosy-lilac. It was awarded the Royal Horticulture Society’s Award of Merit from a plant grown by the Wellcome Foundation at Langley Court in Kent.
Slow to root and establish but well worth the wait, it is always wise to stake for several years after planting to give time for the roots to anchor the tree in place.
Mature height: 5-10m
