Ben Franklin tree on display at Kanapaha Botanical Gardens

It's been over two decades since the Kanapaha Botanical Gardens have displayed the rare Ben Franklin tree. But, visitors will be able to see it once again.

In 1995, the tree was planted in the gardens, but it died because the tree needs acidic soil. Gardeners have spent the last few years growing two Ben Franklin trees, and they'll go on display now.

The tree is extinct in the wild, and was discovered by British naturalist, William Bartram, who named it after family friend, Benjamin Franklin.
