This is one of many trees I got from the Arbor Day Foundation a couple years ago when my mom joined and gave me the saplings. I’ve lost a couple, but most are still doing respectably. Two trees I planted in the ground and the rest are in large pots so they can get nice and big and pretty (well bigGER) and then I can figure out where to put them.
I can’t remember what this tree is, though! It has these gorgeous white flowers with purple in the center – I didn’t ever get a pic of one in bloom, but you can see the remains below. Any ideas on this one would be helpful. It’s so pretty that I think its a tree I definitely want to have a place for somewhere in the yard, but where that place is depends on what this sucker is!
