Can anyone tell me, please - is this a redbud tree?
A few years ago, I planted a row of trees of various kinds near the back deck. I had received them from some group of other, and they looked then like little sticks. They were not identified. Of course, they all grew, and were too close together. One was an apple. I have since separated them, and this one I planted all by itself on the side of the house. It has very pretty blossoms, but I don't recognize them. Its leaves are fairly shiny, some elliptical, some heart shaped. I have a tree book, but it isn't very satisfactory and has no color pictures. I'm being lazy - just throwing it out there to see if anyone recognizes it.
