Halesia carolina

Carolina Silverbell, Snowdrop Tree

White or pink blossoms on Silver Bell trees stand out dramatically against a backdrop of taller trees. Their bell-shaped flowers bloom just as Halesias begin to bud. Plant them in woodland gardens or as accent trees, with Azaleas and Rhododendrons. Thrive on rich, moist, well-drained, acid soils. Prefer some winter chill. Start from seed sown in fall or root cuttings. Protect from wind.

The pure white flowers yield winged seed pods that remain all winter. A shrub in the cooler Northern regions, it reaches tree height in favorable climates. Best pruned into a single-trunked tree when young. The dark green leaves turn yellow in fall.
