The Ben Franklin tree is the next entry on our list of white flowering shrubs.

Although the name says it’s a tree, this plant grows more like a bush if left to its own devices.

It’s a North American native tree that has been extinct in the wild since the early 1800’s, and isn’t widely distributed in nurseries. So it’s another of the less commonly found options for your garden.
