Often twice as broad as it is high, this adored Japanese denizen models an enchanting form: strongly horizontal curving branches with a slightly flat crown. Refined, subtly fragrant white “snowbells” hang down, while the leaves angle upward, allowing the delicate flowers to be easily viewed. Set against mottled gray bark, the lustrous fine textured, rich green foliage casts light shade in summer and flashes red or yellow tones in autumn. A definitive specimen tree, Japanese Snowbell can be situated near a patio, in a raised bed or on a high bank, where it can be relished from below. Well-drained, loamy soil that’s lime-free plus adequate moisture allow it to flourish. Grows moderately.
Size: 25' 0" high x 25' 0" wide.
