  • The Sugar Tyme is a relatively new variety in the crab apple family and it is attractive throughout the year.
  • Sugar Tyme will produce pale pink buds that open to snow white flowers in the spring.
  • This highly ornamental variety is adaptable to most soil conditions but prefers a moist, fertile, well drained soil.
  • The Cercis 'Avondale' is a stunning, compact tree featuring abundant clusters of deep rose-purple flowers.
  • 'Avondale' is perfect as a feature piece in your garden to really get the family talking.
