Cercis canadensis ‘Ruby Falls’ Weeping Redbud

I saw a mature Ruby Falls weeping redbud in Metamora, IL while visiting family. It must have been 6-7 feet tall! Quite a nice specimen out by the side of the road in a river rock drainage ditch.

Let's compare this one to the one in front of my house. Mine is supposed to be 4 years old or so, and it's only a little more than 3 feet tall at the moment. Very cool tree, I'm glad I got it. It also looks great next to river rock, probably not a coincidence.
