  • A large tree with fragrant flowers attracting so many bees the buzzing can be heard several feet away.  

     The tree’s lower branches drape downward before sweeping up in a gentle curve.  The leaves are heart shaped and dark green, turning yellow in the fall.  Small, grey nuts appear later in the summer and persist until winter.
