I received several twigs from the Arbor Day Foundation last year and they are sprouting leaves this year. If you're familiar with them, for a donation of $10 they send you ten trees with "trunks" painted different colors to identify them. I have three that are painted white which means they are supposed to be Red Buds. Well, I may not know much about plants/trees/shrubs, but I do know ONE thing ... and that is what a Red Bud leaf looks like. nodding Out of the tree "white" trees, only one is a Red Bud. The photos below show what the leaves on the other two look like. Does anyone recognize what type of tree or bush these will be? Confused

Looks like an elm or a birch.

The verdict is in ... it's an elm. Glare Not even close to a Redbud! Oh well. Perhaps I'll donate them to a friend because I have tons of elms already. Thumbs up
