Had two nice Redbuds that died (rotted just below the ground) but got some seeds from one. Scattered in a drainage and in one spot planted several seeds under some soil. This tree came up but totally different from the original tree. The original trees always had large growth at the base of the tree and this growth had very large leaves, bigger than on the tree. The new has no growth at the base and all leaves are very large like what grew at the base of the old trees? Do Redbuds revert to some earlier variety?

Can you include a photo? This is not typical of Redbuds. The offspring should be similar. There could be an underlying issue, but I would need a photo to see what is going on.
