Snow in June!
Lovely Japanese Snowbells chime in with a flurry of beauty and fragrance for your May-June garden. But the loveliness does not stop! After the snow falls to the ground. Dainty green drupes take the place of the flowers and persist into the winter. The overall layered shape is most pleasing.
"STYRAX is like an irresistible magnet to honeybees. When in full bloom, if a hive is nearby, it will be so covered with bees you can hear the tree “hum” if you just stand still. I’ve been a beekeeper here in Portland since 1994, and it is one of their favorite trees in the area." (Our thanks to Robert J. a customer for adding this!)
