This small tree occurs under taller trees, on the border of fields, on hillsides and in valleys throughout the state. Its stout branches usually form a wide, flat top. The conspicuous, bright purplish-red pea-shaped flowers are numerous and colorful in the early spring. These flowers and the heart-shaped leaves make redbud desirable for ornamental plantings. Its diameter seldom exceeds 8 inches or its height 25 feet.
