Also Judas leaf tree or Japanese cake tree

Legend and origin of name:
The name Judasbaum is based on the legend that Judas Iscariot hanged himself from such a tree (Mt 27,3-5 EU). According to an account of the Mediterranean region, the tree on this tree turned red with shame (cf. pink flowers). The round leaves, which form only during the blossoming, can be seen as the "silver pieces" that Judas received for his betrayal.
