A handkerchief tree, which produces a profusion of large white bracts that look like freshly laundered handkerchiefs. Also referred to as a dove-tree or ghost tree. It originated from China and was previously included in the dogwood family but now is classified in the Nyssaceae family. (Photo by Sharon O’Brien)
