This Redbud tree is in my front yard, off to the side. As you can see, the trunk is twisted up. The tree is not doing so well this year. It was most likely affected by the drought last year.

Hopefully, the recent rain, the recent rain, the recent rain.....will help it thrive.

LJ, one tree can send up other starts around the base so it is almost like a shrub. Especially true of some of the ornamental trees, like flowering crab and my flowering plum.

I often post items from my son or daughter-in-law in North Carolina. You had asked me if the gardenia smelled nice -- no clue. ; )

Let's hope a good summer of rain restores the tree, LJ. Interesting twist!

It just didn't know which way to grow.... Thanks Laura...

That's a very different tree trunk. It must have divided at ground level when it started growing, or it this the kind of tree that grows that way. Thank you Laura for sharing. Very interesting.

I have lots of dead branches, too, chickie. I was thinking about tackling that job soon.

Rosie, it is all one tree. Weird, isn't it?

Is this a combination of several trunks from the ground? Redbud are so pretty but I have seen others in similar shape. Hope this springs back for you.

Poor redbud. I had to cut out about half of mine this year. Dead branches. : (
