Carolina Silverbell is one of our loveliest native trees, becoming covered with 1" white bells hanging from branches in April and May. The bark is an added element, varying from gray to brown with darker vertical striations. The flowers are followed by interesting brown 4 winged fruits which are also pendent, persisting into the winter. Halesia is a difficult B&B transplant, so we have focused on growing landscape sized plants in containers. Carolina Silverbell grows particularly well in woodland settings and along stream sides.
