Thank you for sharing this heartwarming segment! The lovely poem [In reply to] Can't Post

(and Tolkien's reminiscences of Edith dancing for him) are actually referring to an umbelliferous plant common in Europe, rather than to the North American tree. See these two posts for more (a great deal more, in fact) detail.
