Redbud-cercis canagensis

Cercis 'Forest Pansy' can reach heights of 10m, but if you prune it, it'll will be more shrubby and perfect for small gardens. Note that we are cheating a bit here - Forest Pansy is an eastern redbud, not the California native western redbud, but we wanted this illustration of the extraordinary seasonal changes of cercis. One difference is the purple leaves. Either redbud will have amazing colour change as the seasons progress. Cercis is listed among LA MWD's fire resistant plants.

Clethra "Ruby Spice" ~ also known as sweet shrub, this is a summer-blooming deciduous shrub that draws butterflies and hummingbirds to your garden! A spectacularly bright fern with everchanging color, first emerging in spring as a dazzling purple with silver accents and ruby-red stems. In summer, the leaves become a gleaming shade of silver-gray and the ruby colors deepen to a wine red-purple as the season progresses.
