Tree is about 15 feet high; leaves somewhat fuzzy
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 http://www.missouribotanicalgarden.org/PlantFinder/PlantFinderDetails.aspx?kempercode=r400
From what I’ve read at your suggestion, I think it is a forest pansy.
