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. Graceful subtly fragrant white snowbells hang down, while the leaves angle upward, allowing the delicate flowers to be easily viewed. Set against smooth 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 thatís lime free plus regular adequate moisture allow it to flourish. Grows moderately. Large band.
Size: 25' high x 25' wide; hardy to zone 5.
Styrax japonicus (T-0021)

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.
In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden! Digging Dog's mid March 2017 Newsletter Link
