A beautiful deciduous shrub or small tree with graceful, fanlike branches grows to about 25'. Small oval leaves with scalloped edges turn yellow before dropping in the fall. Dainty white bell-shaped flowers dangle down from the branches in June. For the most enjoyment we suggest planting it where these flower clusters can be viewed from beneath. Recommended for planting among Rhododendrons, azaleas and Kalmia. Tends to be bushy when young. To form a tree, trim off the lower branches as it grows. Be sure to water new plants well, as the foliage will burn if it gets dry. This will not hurt the plant, but will look bad. It is easy to grow and is pest and disease resistant.

Japanese Snowbell produces masses of white very fragrant flowers in late spring. Most of these shrubby trees stay about 15', but I have seen one 25'. zone 6
