We were zipping through Burger King today between soccer games and I spotted a curious set of seed pods. I guess it was a small tree, with smallish multiple trunks like a Magnolia. The leaves were huge, like 8-12 inches long and wide and definately heart shaped. The seed pods looked like some sort of bean pod, maybe twice the thickness of a pencil and about two feet long. Being that it is fairly cool here, I can't swear, but it looked like the leaves were originally dark green, like grass color, but are fading to yellow. Any clues?

Do you have any idea which type? We have several around here and some natives. I have never seen one in this proportion. The whole thing was only about ten feet tall and the leaves and pods are HUGE in comparison. LOL

OK not Cercis then, LOL their leaves are rarely more than 4 inches long. Try Catalpa speciosa which do have long bean pods and leaves 8-12 inches long :)
