Cercis siliquastrum   Judas Tree

cercis siliquastrum whole cercis siliquastrum flowers

A small stunted shrub was growing out of a rock on the edge of the cliffs at Ronda but it doesn't really give an good impression of what a spectacular tree this can be when in full flower. The flowers often spring directly from the branches or trunk of the tree.
