Cercis canadensis

My pictures are from Indiana, where this tree is common both in cultivated and as an understory tree. It also occurs in the southwest, though the southwestern form is generally considered to be a separate variety, var. texensis, whereas the Indiana plants are var. canadensis.

Flowers near Griffy Lake, north of Bloomington, IN, 4/20/03.
