Three Princesses, appearing to be of similar age, line the entrance to Perelman Park. A springtime photo of the trees in bloom is not yet available (the photo here of blooming trees is not from Lancaster County) but these sisters will surely be a sight.

 

This amazing species, native of Asia, is the tallest ornamental flowering tree in the eastern U.S.
