In the Garden

Commonly known as the Judas Tree, it generally has a short, often twisted trunk and spreading branches. The bark is dark in color, smooth, later scaly with ridges somewhat apparent, sometimes with maroon patches. It is a medium size tree to 10m which makes it a great option for street plantings.

Propagation

A native of Southern Europe and West Asia, this tree will grow in all but the most tropical climates in Australia. Whilst moderately drought tolerant, some irrigation in summer is important if you want it to look at its best. Growing best in full sun in cooler climates, the tree will benefit from partial shade in summer when grown in warm climates. Quite adaptable, the tree will grow in most soil types. Fertilise in early spring to encourage spring blooming.
