View Full Version : Help please =)

Well, my dad got this new tree and planted it in the front yard and is basically acting as though he has a new child. The thing is we have no idea what kind of tree it is and he's been trying to find an answer as to what it is and has even gotten my sister, brother, and I to figure it out as well. From what he tells me its nothing like a weeping willow but has little purple fluorescent like flowers that make the whole tree look purple (obviously it would all look purple, but I think he means the bark too?). I would send you all a picture of it, but it doesn't even have any leaves yet. This is definitely stumping all of us. And, I would probably just wait for it to bloom and then figure out what kind of tree it is but my father "must" know the name of this tree before it blooms or something because of the neighbors. Yeah, he's got his issues =P.

Any kind of input would be greatly appreciated.
