Buy Halesia carolina silver bell: Sublime bell-shaped flowers

This tree is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist but well-drained, neutral to acidic soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: March to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A magnificent display is created in late spring, when pendent clusters of white, bell-shaped flowers appear. These emerge at the same time as the fresh green leaves, which will later turn buttery shades in autumn before they fall. The flowers are followed by persistent, winged fruits, that will often stay on the tree into winter. A beautiful, deciduous tree that works well on the edges of a woodland garden, especially when underplanted with seasonal bulbs.

  • Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. Remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches in late autumn or winter. When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly.

We live 200m from the coast in the South of England and wonder if this tree would be suitable for the salty air here?


It may do if it is in a particularly sheltered spot, however thee are not generally well-suited for coastal conditions.
