Synonym: 'Pennsylvania Pride Pink Heartbreaker.' This weeping Redbud is just about the most elegant garden accent you can imagine, whether seen during its spring bloom or as a bare silhouette in winter! Much more dependably upright and better branched than the popular Covey, it's a whole new day for weeping Cercis!

Pink Heartbreaker flowers in earliest spring, before the foliage appears, on upright shrubs with a strong central leader and nicely tiered branching. The flowers are tiny, richly colored a bright shade of lavender-pink, and very profuse. Pink Heartbreaker is a landmark that will be spotted from down the street or way across the garden, so find a place of glory for it!

The flowers continue for many weeks, achieving a second look as the foliage begins appearing among them. These leaves are smaller than the species', and emerge bright red in spring. The color remains until the warm weather of summer begins to arrive, for a lovely pink-and-red play of color that's simply showstopping!

Pink Heartbreaker reaches about 10 to 15 feet high and 8 to 10 feet wide over time, but can be pruned smaller. (If pruning is desired, do so right after flowering, so that the tree can acquire new growth on which to flower next spring.) It makes a stunning specimen, and is a fine focal point for an accent planting. Happy in full sunshine to very light shade, it grows quickly and needs no special attention to keep looking its best.

If you love Cercis (and who among us does not?!), consider some of the other stunning new cultivars as well. It's a great time for Cercis lovers, for new breeding has brought about some amazing breakthroughs. Consider a Cercis accent planting to fill your sunny garden with unbelievable color far beyond springtime! Zones 4-8.
