Halesia

Halesia tetraptera full sun  partial shade

Ringing in spring, clusters of snow white ½ to 1 inch bells hang all along deciduous Halesia’s graceful branches. The finely serrated, oval leaves provide a flash of yellow in autumn, and the four-winged, brown fruit adds winter interest. With its rounded form, Halesia is a fine choice for understory shrubs like Hydrangea ‘White Dome’ and Fothergilla ‘Mt. Airy’.

Flourishing in cool, adequately moist, humus-rich soil, we like to position it to be viewed from below.

Grows to 12’ high in 15 yrs. Medium Band.

Blooms May.

Size: 12' 0"–40' 0" high x 15' 0"–30' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

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