I was on campus today and for the first time I noticed this strange purple/red tree. I was honestly shocked because it looked like a locust but I had never seen one this colour before. I got up closer and realized that it was a locust. There was even a tag on the trunk that confirmed this, as the UWO campus is also an arboretum. I couldn't find any images when I tried searching for it on google. There is a plant called a Purple Robe Locust but the foliage is green and the flowers are purple. This is truly an amazing tree!
