Halesia

Halesia tetraptera full sun  partial shade  new plant

Ringing in spring, clusters of ½ to 1 in. long snow-white bells dangle from Halesia’s graceful branches. The finely serrated, oval leaves provide a flash of yellow in autumn, and the 4-winged brown fruit adds winter interest. With its rounded deciduous form, Halesia is a fine choice for understory shrubs like Hydrangea ‘White Dome’ and Philadelphus ‘Snowbelle’. Thriving in cool, adequately moist, humus-rich soil, we like to position it to be viewed from below. Grows to 12´ in 15 yrs.

Blooms May.

Size: 11-2/3'–40' 0" high x 15' 0"–30' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

“Very nice web site.  I am especially pleased to see your large selection of perennial herbs with the extensive narratives.  We are building up a garden...after Katrina destroyed our old home.”
