Late spring's champion tree of intoxicating perfume, fragrant snowbell displays a fanfare of white, pendent blossoms in drooping clusters below its velvety foliage. A medium-sized, upright deciduous tree with elegant branches, it is native to eastern China, Korea and Japan. The bark is smooth and gray-brown and with age has fissures that reveal an orange skin. Young branch twigs are sienna colored and exfoliate.Leaves are very plump oval, lustrous dark green above and fuzzy underneath. They can become fairly large, and have inconsistent and random teeth toward their acute, central tips. In late spring and summer, the branch tips create a drooping flowerspike filled with a family of intensely fragrant, five-petaled white flowers. Flying pollinator insects flock to the tree, resulting in an open, scraggly "grape-cluster" of light golen tan, rounded fruits by late summer. The fall foliage color is not considered ornamentally significant, even though golden yellow, since a killing frost often browns the leaves before they would naturally start turning yellow.Plant fragrant snowbell in full sun or partial shade in a moist, acidy, well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter. In warmer climates it may be best placed in partial shade, and is considered a bit more heat and cold tolerant than the Japanese snowbell (Styrax japonicus). It makes a lovely specimen tree in the lawn or garden border, and is arguably its finest application. Imagine the display if rhododendrons, azaleas and mountain laurel grow under this tree and flower around the same time!
