Native to Japan and China and introduced to the United Kingdom in 1875, Pterostyrax hispida has spectacular panicles of fragrant, white flowers (up to 25 cm long) which resemble epaulettes. These eye-catching flowers appear in early to mid summer. The bright green leaves are similar in appearance to those of a Halesia (Snowdrop tree) in spring and summer and turn a pleasing yellow in autumn before falling.
