What’s blooming in Nashville?
Magnolia stellata–a lovely, early-blooming small tree, native to Japan. Unfortunately, you don’t see it nearly as frequently as its ubiquitous blooming contemporary, the Bradford pear. I will supply a photo of that execrable weed, so beloved of contractors. But the photo in no way constitutes an endorsement of that blighted, flimsy-limbed, stinky-blossomed waste of soil.
