Anybody know what kind of tree this is, in Redding?

I see a lot of Redding yard landscaping. This tree is unusual. Wildly prolific purple blossoms in Spring.

Purple Tree3This tree and at least one more is off Alta Mesa, at the corner of Marlene and Cockerill. A very stunning specimen, and not typical around here. I’m curious. Let me know if you know what kind of tree this is.
