Description: This little tree is very versatile. It does well in part sun where it is shrubby to part shade where it is more of a trunked tree. It's very drought tolerant. Purple axillary flowers similar to a redbud's will emerge in early spring before foliage. In fall after foliage has dropped, black seed pods will cling to the branches.
