NotesKnowle Tree Survey No. 3.  The common name of Judas Tree may come from the myth that it was a Cercis from which Judas Iscariot hanged himself.  The myth also claims the trees flowers represent the tree being covered with blood at Easter.  The flowers, which open before the leaves, show this to be a member of the Pea family.
