Hidden treasures

1108131442Yesterday I discovered this tree on the edge of a client’s woods.  Because I had recently purchased one, I knew it was a Japanese Snowbell or Styrax Japonica.  And because it is showing such lovely fall color it was easy to see other hidden treasures!

1108131443Nearby were easily identified smaller versions with the same color and characteristics.  Babies!   I let the client know of my find and hopefully, I’ll be able to harvest these youngsters and provide my Master Gardener organizations and others with a beautiful, though small, plant.

So keep an eye out for those prizes.  And gather up this harvest next spring for sharing. YCGT
