Cercis chinensis 'Gempei' (Chinese redbud) is a medium/large multi stemmed, deciduous shrub with green, heart shaped leaves and white/pink flowers in early spring. Cercis chinensis 'Gempei' is a small growing selection of Chinese redbud that produces white and pink flowers during early spring. Cercis chinensis 'Gempei' is a good example of a chimera (... consisting of tissues of diverse genetic constitution) where part of the plant expresses white flowers and other parts express pink flowers. Cercis chinensis 'Gempei' has been rather difficult to propagate so will likely not be available often. Cercis chinensis 'Gempei' is an interesting addition to any redbud collection and would make a great specimen.
