Re: smoke tree/redbud

Most interesting, Kitty. I think it may be climate...they do not do
well nor live too long here in full sun.  They will get 40 feet tall,
even as understory trees.  I think they're considered "small" trees
as opposed to an oak or a tulip poplar or any of the other really
large forest trees...not because they're necessarily tiny:-)
