This beautiful deciduous flowering tree makes a wonderful specimen plant that enhances any landscape. Flowers bloom a rich purple, lavender and pink color in spring and continue through until frost. This plant grows and flowers best with rich, moist soil in full sun, but will tolerate less hospitable conditions just as well. This beautiful tree makes a great centerpiece as well as an attractive living border. Specimens from the south are especially tolerant of the high pH of city soil and are a great choice to plant as a street tree. Can tolerate some drought as well as heavy rainfall and adapts to most soil conditions. Mature specimens grow up to 25 ft. in height and 35 ft. wide. This item is shipped bare-root, which means it is dormant, with no leaves, no soil, and the roots are exposed. Winter planted bare-root trees are more economical due to ease of handling and transporting.
