CERCIS

Genus of about 10 species of deciduous shrubs and trees from woodlands, woodland margins and rocky hillsides in the Mediterranean, central and eastern Asia and North America.

The most common is C. siliquastrum, Judas tree - or more likely Judea's tree (where it is  commonplace). An absolute eyecatcher when flowers appear from an old trunk.
