The Judean Tree (Cercis siliquastrum), or siliquaster, is a deciduous tree native to southern Europe and western Asia.
According to legend, it is to this tree that Judas hanged himself after betraying Jesus Christ.
Leaves, bluish green, kidney-shaped, are indented at the base.
The purple pink flowers are cauliflores (= appear on the old branches), before the leaves and are present from March to June. They are inflorescences in simple raceme.
The fruit is a flattened pod, a characteristic fruit of legumes.
It is a sciaphile tree with spreading habit naturally present on the Mediterranean matorrals. It is hardy but fears late frosts. He prefers calcareous and dry grounds.
The young subjects are fragile during the first 3 years or one will take care to water them in summer and mulch them in winter. Once installed, it is very suitable for drought. Like all legumes, this tree can be content with poor soils because it itself produces the nitrogen it needs.
Its growth is rapid the first years then slows down.
It reproduces by sowing or cuttings and flowers after 5 to 6 years. It is necessary to favor the planting of young subjects because the older ones do not support being transplanted.
