    I’ve seen a few of these trees, also. Except for the leaf color, they look like our native Redbuds to me. Maybe they are a cultivated hybrid or close relative. Waiting with you for an expert to weigh in.

    There’s a number of cultivars of the redbud with purple leaves, variegated leaves and what have you…

    This one might be Forest pansy

    From what I’ve read at your suggestion, I think it is a forest pansy.
