Japanese Pagodatree in Prospect Park
Native to Eastern Asia, this tree was once planted at the graves of Japanese scholars. It is a successful street tree in cities because of its tolerance of soil compaction and temperature extremes. It has a delicate, feathery foliage with attractive clusters of white flowers that bloom early in the fall.
