Japanese snowbell and cvs. (Styrax japonicus)
STY-raks jah-PON-ih-kus
Genus:  Styrax
Japanese snowbell is a compact, deciduous tree with a graceful spreading habit. In late spring, it produces hanging clusters of sweetly scented, bell-shaped white flowers. Minutely toothed, bright green leaves have a clean, fresh look in all but the driest conditions. Attractive fine twigs are borne on slender, somewhat-layered branches, and the bark is a smooth gray-brown. ‘Pink Chimes' bears abundant, dangling clusters of pale pink flowers.
Care:  Grow in moist but well-drained, fertile, humus-rich, neutral to acidic soil. Shelter from wind. Grows well where summers are hot and humid if it has some afternoon shade.
Propagation:  Take greenwood cuttings in summer.
Problems:  Infrequent.
