Carolina Silver Bell
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.
Size: 12'–40' high x 15'–30' wide; hardy to zone 5.
Halesia tetraptera (T-0238)

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
