I have this medium to large sized bush that I need to identify. I'm not very plant knowledgable so I don't have a clue what it is. There are four pictures of it in the Picasa album I set up (see link below). Hopefully those will help you identify it. ... directlink

I think Ron on UBC or maybe saltcedar there identified this as a Cercis of some sort, one with a var. mexicana. So a redbud. The wavy edged leaves seemed to clinch it. I'm all for lots of potential IDs because it's so hard to really do this with only pictures to go by.

With the leaves alone I was headed in an entirely different, more houseplant direction. Heaven knows we've all seen them planted outdoors in a variety of climates.

I haven't been able to see it year round so I don't know if it blooms or what color it turns in the fall.

I'm in agreement that I think it's a redbud. The Mexican redbud leaves look very similar to what I have.
