A ride down a country road in Yulee is always a delight, but you never know what lovely tree, bush or plant you might see. This Red Tip Photinia, has pretty white flowers in compact clusters and interesting red and green leaves. There are red berries in the fall.

The fringe tree, Chionanthus virginicus, is a shrub like tree with beautiful white blooms in May. They are showy, fragrant and attract birds, with a black fruit in the fall.

Then who knows what wonderful flowers(weeds?) you might see on the sides of the road.... blue spiderwort, purple and pink phlox , and many other colors and varieties. The definition of a weed is “ a plant growing at the wrong place” and so these beautiful blossoms are not weeds. Enjoy the Country Roads in Nassau.
