Halesia carolina 'Wedding Bells' 

Wedding Bells Carolina Silverbell


Wedding Bells is best known for its compact form and prolific display of large, white spring flowers. With a name derived from the winged fruits and the flowers that resemble small silver bells, this cultivar of Carolina Silverbell is a great little native tree that grows in moist soils and heavy shade. Discovered by Dr. Mark Brand in Ohio and introduced through the University of Connecticut, this tree can fill those dark niches in shrub or woodland borders and is best set off with a dark green backdrop.
