Q.My Lavender Weeping Redbud Has Grown A New Stalk From The Ground. What Do I Do?

Zone 40214 | Anonymous added on May 15, 2022 | Answered

I believe we trimmed our Lavendar weeping redbud back too short one fall because I noticed a new tree growing from the ground right next to the other the next year. At first I thought it was something else but let it grow. The leaves are identical to the other but the stalk is different color. At first I tried to train it to weep but no luck. I trim it way back each fall, but every year it gets taller. So I have one weeping and one tall straight lavender redbud coming out of the ground together. Any advice?

It is likely a sucker and needs to be removed. Always remove any suckers that come from the ground around the tree.
