Growing 30 feet tall and 15 to 20 feet wide, this Halesia thrives in full sun or part shade. Utterly trouble-free, it blooms very heavily in late spring and sports lush, olive-green foliage all summer. When the temperature drops, the leaves turn bright yellow, and after they fall, the fascinating patterns of the deep brown bark are revealed for winter enjoyment. Often difficult to locate these days, the Pink Carolina Silverbell is a gift of all-season beauty that no landscape should miss. Zones 4-8.
