Halesia monticola

Syn. Halesia tetraptera, 'Mountain Snowbell'

Reported to grow to 25 m in its native habitat, the deciduous 'Mountain Snowbell' is not expected to grow much larger than 6 m in cultivation.

Bears clusters of 2-5 campanulate white pendulous flowers around 25 mm long along past season's leaf axils in Spring before the leaves emerge.

Juvenile growth is fairly vigorous. Leaves turn yellow in Autumn; mature trunks are reported to exfoliate providing additional attractive feature in Winter.
