Description

A new selection, Styrax japonica 'Pink Snowbell' has masses of bell-shaped, pale-pink, pendant flowers in early to mid summer. The leaves are darker in colour than those of the otherwise very similar Styrax 'Pink Chimes', emerging very dark green, sometimes purple-green although not usually as dark as those of Styrax 'Purple Dress'.

Lovely, reliable small tree with masses of flower once established.
