Botany 101

Posted in In DC at 2:35 pm by graceandpoise

This being my third spring in DC, I really should have figured this out by now.  There is this tree here in DC that can be found in people's yards, along parking strips, etcetera that gets lots of bright purple blooms all along its branches in the spring.  I've been trying with no luck to find someone around here who knows what the name of this tree is.  No reason, really, other than that it just bothers me that I don't know it.  Anyway, here is a close-up of a branch.  If anyone out there knows the name of it, could you let me know?

    It’s an Eastern Redbud tree. It’s native to this region. Hello from a soon-to-be FSO. 🙂
