HD photographs of historical Judas Tree inside Jardin des Tuileries - Page 176
We were in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris next to the Petit Reserve sud garden area of Jardin des Tuileries when we took these high definition photos showing a Cercis siliquastrum, or Judas Tree.

You will find that the Tuileries Gardens has numerous different species of trees, with some of these being recognised as remarkable, and this first HD photo shows a large historical Cercis siliquastrum, which has a common name of a Judas Tree and can grow to approximately 12 metres in height and almost as wide.
Now this next close up photo shows the tourist plaque positioned by the old stone vase in front of the tree, and as you can see it mentions the French common name of Arbre de Judee, which in English translates to Tree of Judea, a name taken from where the type of tree first originated from, yet there is also a myth that Judas Iscariot hung himself from this particular species of tree.
The Cercis siliquastrum is from the Fabaceae family of flowering plants, and in late spring time you will be able to see the beautiful flowers that the Judas Tree produces, and with the fact that the Jardin des Tuileries does not use any pesticides or insecticides these are a magnet for bees who pollinate the flowers.
