Assignment by Kt II

These little flowers are on trees out at our place in the country. I never really looked closely at them. They are about 1/4 inch in diameter. I will have to research the tree for an ID.

Kt, That's a really nice white flower. I would like to now the name, when you find out. Maybe I can grow it around here.

Nice close up

Very pretty. It's a tree? I'd love to see the whole thing if you could.

Very pretty, Kt,
Are they a native in your area?

I'll try to get a photo of the whole thing but usually the tree grows among other trees making it difficult for a solo photo, but I'll keep looking.

As far as I know, they are native to this area, but I haven't seen them in bloom except on rare occasions, and even then I never really looked close enough at them to study these tiny flowers.

Eric, I will wait and see if some seeds develop if you like some, although it may be easier to start with a larger tree.

Thanks all.
