A beautiful tree native to the United States, Halesia carolina has clusters of three to five, pendulous, white flowers with a golden center and delicate scent in late spring. The flowers usually appear on fairly young plants and are borne on branches of one year old wood. The leaves are dark green turning golden yellow in a good, crisp autumn before falling.

Halesia carolina is a fantastic, branching flowering small tree, ideal for border planting or growing as a standalone specimen!
