Hi; I am a recent lurker here; I live in Northern Ontario, Canada,
married with two small children and can finally start looking after
the flower beds and trees I have in my yard.
Although my back yard is quite well treed, the front yard is pretty
barren. I would like to plant a flowering tree there. A cousin of
mine used to live in Trenton, Ontario, near Ottawa and had a beautiful
tree in his front yard. It was about the size of a 15 year old lilac
tree and it had beautiful flowers on it that only bloomed at night.
When I questioned him about this tree, he could not remember what it
was. His wife thought it was called "Four o'clock", but wasn't sure
and I can't seem to find any reference to a tree by that name.
Can anyone here help me?

Can't "name that tree" .. but .. can ask.. does your community have a
city forestation program? Sometimes if you have a house that borders
a city street, they will plant a tree or two along the front of your
house, either in the "parking" area, if you have such (part that if
you have a sidewalk in front of your house, and then a grassy area
between the sidewalk and the city street) or even in your yard a
certain distance from the road. Here we have a list of trees from
which to chose. They plant them, you are responsible for their care.
If your community has a "city forestry" or "street trees" "parks"
section in the phone book... call them, talk to them, they can give
you pointers, possibly help identify the mystery tree!
Someone else here will most likely answer or ask more questions about
the tree, or know what it is, or point you to pictures about them
