i fell in love with a Cercis tree i saw recently in Airfield House. it was still a very vivid burgandy and i’ve since been trying to buy one but see that most types fade to green by this time of the year.. could you recommend a type that retains its colour throughout summer? also i would be planting it next to a wall and it would be a little exposed.. is this ok?

That sounds like Cercis ‘Forest Pansy’.

Cercis not all that happy when exposed, the leaves tend to look a bit ‘hardshipped’.
