Description

Hopefully Available Winter 2017 - Very rare and new to us, Halesia macgregorii is native to China and has eye-catching, pendulous, slender white flowers in late Spring or early Summer. The leaves are mid green in colour.

Halesia macgregorii is most suited to a sheltered position in sun or light, dappled shade. It enjoys moist soil but does not want to sit wet and cold overwinter in a waterlogged position.
