Hi. There isn't a question here. Are you wanting to know the ID of this plant?  

How do you know the hardiness? 

Thanks, 
Kim

So sorry, I am new to this site. We don't know what the plant is. The only info I was given was that it is not hardy in zone 8 and grows very tall when grown inside. Not much for you to go on, I know.

That's okay! I will work on getting an ID for you.  You are right, it looks like a Cercis on steroids. Have you seen a flower on it? Could you get a pic of the stem?

I will contact the woman who showed it to me and forward the info. Sorry -  Cerces.
