An Allee of Flowering Trees at My Farm

I love planting allees of trees - they create such beautiful and dramatic canopies over the carriage roads around my Bedford, New York farm.

Not long ago, I ordered another large batch of trees from JLPN, a family owned tree seedling company in Salem, Oregon. Among them was a group of Styrax japonicus 'Evening Light' - purple trees with fragrant, white, bell-shaped flowers. With its profuse blooming character, I decided the trees would make a wonderful addition to the allee of pink-flowered Styrax on the carriage road leading to my tennis court.

Here are some photos - enjoy.
