Photo of the Day: Korean Tetradium, Berkshire Botanical Garden, Stockbridge, MA

In the picturesque Berkshire Mountains of Western Massachusetts, the Berkshire Botanical Garden is a particular delight—a bounty of beauty that is nature’s counterpart to the Daniel Chester French and Norman Rockwell Museums that are also in the town of Stockbridge.

Among the many items in this garden that caught my eye when I visited in late August 2017 was the Tetradium daniellii, or more commonly known as the Korean Tetradium. This rounded, dome shaped, tree, which can grow to 50 feet, is native to mountain woodlands of western China and Korea.
