This tree seems like a good addition to a garden/landscaping project, but I've never seen it before. Leaves are turned down. I don't know if that's an aberration for this particular plant or characteristic of the species.

Any ideas what this is?

Did you buy it or was it a volunteer, and where do you live? –  Grady Player May 31 '12 at 13:31
It's not Morus albus pendula as the leaves are not toothed. Still looking for other possibilities –  kevinsky May 31 '12 at 13:32
I spotted it in a yard and was interested. I live in central Mississippi. –  walker May 31 '12 at 13:49

It looks like a weeping form of redbud.

This article describes a Texas variety called the Traveller that I think this especially looks like. –  walker Jun 1 '12 at 2:21
or it could be the Lavender Twist Variety described here treesusa.com/Plantinfo/Ornamental/redbud,%20lav%20twist.pdf either way, good ID –  kevinsky Jun 1 '12 at 2:42
