The northern or upper entrance of the Bartram Trail.

Pictured left, a helleborus blooms in the winter over the marker that marks the upper entrance to the Thomas W. Bartram Trail. On the right, the Japanese Flowering Apricot (Prunus mume "Peggy Clark") also blooms in the winter; both add a little color to the dreary winter months starting in January.

he American naturalist John Bartram traveled throughout the Southeast United States discovering and cataloging flora and fauna of the region.
As we end our visual tour of the Bartram Trail and return to the main paved path, in front of you and opposite the marker stone is American Yellowwood (Cladrastis kentukea). A close up of the leaves are pictured far right. At the Bartram Garden in Philadelphia, which considers itself America's birthplace for gardening, the yellowwood is one of the oldest trees of note on the property besides the ginkgo (Gingko biloboa).
