Styrax

Styrax japonicus full sun  partial shade

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.

Blooms May-June

Size: 25' 0" high x 25' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
