Please Help I.D. This Tree / Shrub ?
I will give you all the information on this specimen as I can. I live in the southeastern portion of North Carolina. This "tree" is about thirty feet tall and there are many others around it of various sizes. I could not take a picture of it because it is located on my work location at the prison where I work. Taking pictures can / will get me fired!
Anyway, I already stated the sizes of this specimen. The leaves are kind of football shaped and are not very large. The flowers, which seem to number in the thousands, are very tiny and white. Each flower has only four petals. It is very fragrant. The limbs hang somewhat gracefully from the specimen. I did sneak a small sample from the specimen in order to try to post a pic on our forum so that maybe I can get an accurate description of it ! Here goes nothing..............Thanks to all who can help!
