Greetings Emily,

Well, eastern redbud, cucumbertree (cucumber magnolia), and several species of plum are native to Illinois. Forest Pansy redbud is merely an onrnamental cultivar, but a native species nonetheless.

Purple Leaf Plum is not native to Illinois, rather it is native to Europe and Asia.
