Tree of the Month – Judas Tree

The Judas Tree – Is-Siġra ta’ Ġuda

The Judas Tree has disappeared from the countryside where it was very common. This tree can only be seen in parks and in the streets.  The tree is semi-deciduous.  This means that most of the leaves drop during the autumn months and it flowers in early Spring. The flowers are purple in colour and they give our streets a wonderful look when Easter is approaching.
